2005 Braida Bricco della Bigotta
I bought this wine directly from the winery during my visit to Braida in September. It was the wine I enjoyed the most from the line up organized by Raffaella Bologna during the lunch we had together.
Deep dark red color. Initially shy, with aeration the nose started to open up considerably. Well developed, very intense aromas started to come out of the glass, with truffles, earth, tobacco and plenty of fresh red and blue fruits. Medium to full bodied, well structured and balanced, there is depth and richness on the palate, with flavors of mocha, fresh red and black forest fruits, truffles and a touch of earthiness. Long finish with good freshness to balance the 14.5% alc. Great wine. (91/100)
