quite well.
Winemaking: The grapes are sourced from family-owned vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba (Ornato), Grinzane Cavour (Gustava), La Morra (Roncaglie) and Barolo-Novello (Ravera). The balance of the grapes comes from other exclusive vineyards owned by growers who have been providing grapes to the Pio Cesare family for generations. Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks, with skin contact for about 20 days. The wine is aged in mid-toasted French oak for three years: 70 percent in 20 to 50 hectoliter casks; 30 percent in barriques.

vintages and represents the pinnacle of Braida’s winemaking ability. Deep ruby with purple hues. Ample, rich and complex bouquet, with intense notes of wild berries, florals, vanilla, liquorice and cocoa. A warm mouth feel with a deep structure, while at the same time elegant, harmonious and sensual, leading to a long finish. Accompanies savory meat dishes, roasts, game and aged cheeses. This can be enjoyed now with some decanting, but will age nicely as well.

We are excited to share our bounty of beautiful Barbera wines from Braida. This winery was founded over fifty years ago in Piedmont by Giacomo Bologna who realized the inherent potential of the Barbera grape. Up to that point, others were content to produce simple table wines, which lacked complexity or ageability. Controlling yields in the vineyard and employing strict winemaking practices in the cellar greatly improved the quality of the wine. Giacomo also began using French barriques to age his wine, which was a practice unknown at that time among Barbera winemakers.

Today, the third generation of the family continues their pursuit of elevating the Barbera grape to the status of noble grapes, which is normally reserved for other international varieties. Their efforts have paid off and are apparent in every sip you take. These are fantastic wines of purity and depth.

With strict attention to detail, Braida produces exceptional wines. The Bricco Dell'Uccellone and Ai Suma bottlings are serious wines, which demonstrate the heights which the Barbera grape can attain. The quality is outstanding with a textural mouth feel which is polished from start to finish.

Ratings from these trio of wines have not yet been released, but prior vintages have received outstanding scores from Robert Parker, Wine Spectator and other critics. They have also received the coveted Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) awarded by the influential Italian food and wine magazine, Gambero Rosso. Based on our tastings of these delicious wines, we expect excellent reviews again. Bravissimo to Braida!

bouquet of blackberry, cigar box, and freshly tilled Earth. This medium bodied velvety wine finishes with a bright acids and a persistent finish. The Burlotto Barbera d’Alba is a substantial wine that can be consumed young, but will evolve magnificently in the bottle.

Burlotto is a historical winery that goes back to 1850, when G.B. (Giovan Battista) Burlotto founded the winery, in the Piedmontese village of Verduno. Mr. Burlotto’s achievements were only rivaled by Biondi-Santi and Vega-Sicilia, as he gained superstar status in a world dominated by French wines. Among his other achievements, G.B. was the first in the area to bottle his wine (as opposed to distributing by cask) and he also became the official supplier to the Royal House of Savoy, which once ruled Piedmont, as well as becoming “The Only Supplier to the Duke of Abruzzi’s Arctic Expedition to the North Pole.”

with fruit and spice notes lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 4,000 cases made." –BS

This is fantastic juice from one of the top producers in Piemonte, Italy. Their vineyards (their first familial purchase in the 1950s was a hectare of land not far from the Canale d'Alba) are located in the best Barbera-producing regions of Roero-- the northern part of d’Alba and just south of d’Asti. Third generation winemaker Federico Faccenda has taken Cascina Chicco to the next level since taking over in the 1980s, integrating modern winemaking technologies, with Roero Arneis DOCG being one of his excellent results. This is easy-to-drink, approachable wine-- you can enjoy it with or without food. It is quite well balanced with great acidity, soft texture and smooth tannins. The eye sees a bright ruby color, with aromas and tastes of uplifting cherry and lovely dark fruits, hints of spice. The finish is long, savory and relaxed. Drink for next 3-4 years.

not fine or filter the wines. With a median of 3 years of ageing (some of the labels less, some more), he believes the wine prepares itself in its OWN time to go into the bottle and his only job is to communicate (taste) with it along the way to find out where in it's life line it is. Fabrizio says about his wines, "While each is different and has a unique personality - they all share the common characteristic of being 'loyal and honest'".

Iuli was awarded the Chiocciola, Slow Wine Guide's highest accolade in 2011 and 2012.

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - “The 2009 Barbera d’Alba Gallina is rich, powerful and direct. I am surprised by the wine’s huge structure, as I expected a Read More...
softer Barbera given the vintage and site. Plums, mocha, licorice and grilled herbs all flesh out in the powerful, incisive Barbera. With time in the glass, the wine turns increasingly floral and delicate, yet never loses its essential depth. Readers will need to be patient, but there is no denying the 2009 is shaping up to be a wonderful bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.”

La Spinetta’s first Barbaresco wine came from the “Gallina” Cru in Nieve, but a significant portion grows world class Barbera. Barbera “Gallina” is perhaps the finest example in this selection of La Spinetta’s rare balance of richness and purity.
