Giuseppe Bologna was a wheelwright by trade. He owned a large Barbera vineyard at Rocchetta Tanaro and made a little wine for himself and his friends. Giuseppe’s son Giacomo inherited the vineyard and his father’s nickname, Braida, which he gave to the vineyard. In 1982, after a study tour of Californian wineries, Giacomo drastically decreased his harvests and began to make wine in small barrels. This gave Barbera, low in tannin and rich in acids, a more complex and elegant structure. Giacomo Bologna’s love of the land, wine and life produced a superb Barbera. Barbera had previously been used for cheap local wine and was catapulted into the arena of great wines known all over the world.
The 'Vigna Senza Nome' (no-name vineyard) has a highly aromatic nose which is characteristic of the Moscato d’Asti – delicate notes of grapes, orange blossoms, jasmine and elderflowers. Soft floral notes and the sweet primary grape aromas are translated well onto the palate. Pleasantly refreshing, with soft notes of orange blossom and honeyed stone fruit with a clean finish. A beautiful, high-quality Moscato for any occasion.
Made with 100% Moscato d’Asti grapes grown in an estate-owned vineyard in Mango.
Light to mid-yellow colour with persistent fine bubbles. Lovely fresh, floral muscat-fruit aroma, gardenia-like. It's light and refreshing, beautifully balanced and only medium-sweet. The finish is clean. Delicious. (100 grams per litre sweetness) Price: $22.50; Rating: 92 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
