In Piedmont the word “Bricco” represents the highest part of the hill, the best exposed one. Bricco Bonfante belongs to the Bonfante family since 8 generations. On this hill it was selected one and a half hectare of vineyard which is south-exposed. A thorough thinning of the vineyard favours both the ripening of the grapes and the concentration of the extracts. The long refinement in oak barrels and in the bottle soften the surly character of the Barbera and it gives this wine an excellent harmony. The Bricco Bonfante is a long-lived wine: if stored at constant temperature (12°-14°C) it can be drunk even after 20-25 years.
