Barbera d’Asti Bricco Preje DOC (Cru Barbera)

Located between the cities of Milano and Torino in the northwestern corner of the Italian Peninsula, Piemonte has long been regarded as one of the world’s greatest wine growing regions.  The ancestral home to the House of Savoy and Italy’s royal family, this quiet region has for decades been the chief rival to Tuscany in the creation of elegant and complex vini rossi, often surpassing its southern counterpart with spectacular vintages that offer rich, hedonistic wines designed to age gracefully. As nearly every wine aficionado and critic will tell you, the wines here are always full of character and very special, something not to be missed.

The smaller and lesser known of the 2 main Piemontese growing zones, Asti is a unique appellation with many diverging wine styles and types.  Traditionally an area geared toward the production of wines that are spicy and jammy with less tannic structure, the region has become famous for the opulent and fruit forward Nebbiolo produced around the tiny medieval village of Barbaresco.  In similar fashion, the Dolcetto produced at Dogliani has created a loyal and growing following among wine enthusiasts.  The world has even begun to take notice of the area’s main sweet white wine, Moscato d’Asti, spawning countless international imitators and lesser quality knock-offs.  Yet, few wineries have elected to undertake the cultivation and development of Piemonte’s other great grape varietal—Barbera.

Created in 2001 by the Gaslini-Alberti family, Poderi dei Bricchi Astigiani is an innovative estate eschewing the region’s modern production emphasis in favor of a more traditional commitment to the production of top quality, cru Barbera.  Found at the epicenter of Asti near the village of Nizza, the winery boasts extensive vineyard holdings in some of the area’s best villages, including several key plots near Monferrato, Vigliano, and Castelnuovo Calcea.  The resulting wines are a testament to the winery’s success in achieving its goals, and represent some of the expressive and complex Barbera available today.
