Braida, a name, a story, a revolution in the world of Barbera, bringing a variety considered by many to be not very noble in the Olympus of great varieties. The story of Braida began way back in 1961 when Giacomo Bologna created "La Monella" with the first harvest, a sparkling Barbera which in 1969 was awarded the gold medal at the national Douja d'Or wine competition in Asti and which gave the opportunity to make the product known and have the opportunity to exhibit ad honorem in other national competitions. But it was in 1982 that Giacomo Bologna, thanks to the intuitions and tests made on the vine both in the vineyard and in the cellar, created a unique product of its kind that until then was unthinkable: Bricco dell'Uccellone, a large-fruited Barbera that matures with the use of the barrique, never used for the vinification of Barbera. In that same period other great wines of the Cellar were born, such as Bricco della Bigotta and Ai Suma. Over time, new vineyards and new projects are born with the aim of safeguarding the native vines, enhancing them and creating typical wines of great finesse. Now the winery is managed by Giacomo's children, Raffaella and Giuseppe who carry the company philosophy that has characterized Braida in all these years.
Montebruna Braida is produced with Barbera grapes grown in the Rocchetta di Tanaro vineyard which, after a careful manual harvest, undergoes fermentation for two weeks in steel tanks at a controlled temperature and then a year in large oak barrels.
Montebruna Braida has a beautiful ruby red tending towards purplish; notes of ripe red fruit and small berries stand out on the nose which are then found on the palate which is full and deep with a long and pleasant finish.
