Braida 'Bricco dell'Uccellone' 2017

2017 Barbera d'Asti DOCG 750ml

Description

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.
 
94 POINTS, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate (July 2020)
One of the wines that changed the modern history of Italian wine, this expression from Braida is an evergreen favorite. The 2017 Barbera d'Asti Bricco dell'Uccellone is a dark and almost impenetrable expression with bold layers of thick, dark fruit. The wine is constructed like a little tower, layer upon layer, that rises tall with momentum and power. The intensity is beautiful, and that's always been the defining trait of Uccellone. It drinks beautifully now, but it will hold its own in the cellar.
