Bonarda dell'Oltrepò Pavese DOC

La Briccona

Semi-sparkling red wine

The semi-sparkling (frizzante) Bonarda is one of the most traditional Oltrepò Pavese wines and the favourite of my mother Patrizia, nicknamed as “la briccona” (Italian for “rascal”) for her lively temper. She’s the pivotal figure of our family just like this Bonarda is the pivotal wine of our winery. This semi-sparkling Bonarda combines rich tannins with the soft sweetness of the residual sugar.

La Briccona is one of the 16 Bonarda of the Bonarda #LaMossaPerfetta project. The project has been developed by Distretto del Vino di Qualità dell’Oltrepò Pavese to promote the appreciation of the most popular Oltrepò Pavese wine and includes only wineries that have full control of the whole production chain, from grapegrowing to winemaking and sales.
