Every year since 2012, the US magazine Wine Spectator has been selecting the top 100 Italian wines tasted over the previous 12 months, basing its choice on quality, value, availability and the attention aroused.
Once again, in 2019, Braida’s Barbera d’Asti Docg Bricco dell’Uccellone is on the list, with the 2016 vintage.
It’s the only Barbera featured in the ranking.
By virtue of this acknowledgement, Braida is among the wineries selected for the 2019 edition of Opera Wine (www.operawine.it), on Saturday 6 April in Verona at Palazzo della Gran Guardia.
The partnership between the prestigious US magazine Wine Spectator and Veronafiere – Vinitaly, has led to a new project in 2019, OperaWine, Finest Italian Wines: 100 Great Producers selected by Wine Spectator. As the name says, OperaWine is the exclusive event that offers specialised operators from all over the world the opportunity to get to know the 100 finest Italian wines. The ranking is drawn up by the experts of Wine Spectator, a publication recognised internationally as an authority in the winegrowing sector. Every year, the judges subject the Italian wines selected to meticulous visual and sensorial examination, assigning each one a score based on various criteria. The result that emerges is the absolute excellence of Italy’s winemakers: wineries from all over the country which, despite differences in terroir, production style and size of the estate, are all characterised by the very high quality of the wines produced.
