Braida Bricoo dell'Ucellone awarded 91 points by Robert Parker

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

The flagship 2005 Bricco dell’Uccellone is a wonderfully fragrant version of this wine. It is unusually refined in its expression of small red fruits, spices, flowers, tar, smoke and toasted oak, all of which are supported by finessed tannins. Readers who enjoy the big style of Bricco dell’Uccellone might prefer other recent vintages, but those seeking a ore restrained Barbera will find much to admire here. This is a beautiful wine.
