Wine maker notes
Grignolino is one of the historical and characteristic grapes of Piedmont and its value is enhanced even more by the limited quantity produced. Normally planted in light, loose soils, Grignolino has always been identified with characteristics of finesse and lightness. However, our new vineyard has a soil rich in clay and silt (the hill takes its name from the latter in Italian= limo) which gives a fleshy and crisp superiority to the taste.
Table wine, delicate, well suited for starters, soups and fish.
It all began with the nickname “Braida”, which was acquired by the great-grandfather Giuseppe Bologna who was a champion in playing “pallone elastico” on town and church squares, a typical sport of the Piedmont region. Giacomo Bologna inherited both vineyards and nickname from his father, but above all an unconditional love for his land and wine.Since 1961 until today Braida has been the amplified and faithful image of the philosophy of Giacomo and Anna, their prospect of life, earth, wine and friendship.
Raffaella and Giuseppe Bologna, both oenologists, are the third “Braida” generation and are united by the initial dream to elevate the Barbera grape into a noble status which for some would seem to be reserved only for international varieties.
