Bricco dell'Uccellone is Braida's flagship wine. It is so-called for a woman who lived near the vineyard who had a particularly large nose. It is a serious red wine capable of ageing for 20+ years.
Giacomo Bologna, the late founder of Braida and the pioneer of Barbera as a variety to be recognised as an age-worthy fine red wine, ensured his legacy with the creation of this wine. Keep a bottle of Bricco dell'Uccellone cellared for 20 years and you will be handsomely rewarded.
The bouquet is rich, aromatic and complex with a remarkable intensity and multilayered concentration
The wine is generous, voluptuous and full-bodied with a multidimensional structure, perfectly balanced between the grape characteristics and high quality oak, with a persistent long finish.
