Very good partecipation to the tasting organized by Winemosaic and held by Andrea Costa. The event was included in the main masterclass calendar of Vinisud 2016 in Montepllier.
The origin of Brachetto is in the hills of Alto Monferrato, around Acqui Terme. The first books talking about Brachetto are dated 1700.
It is an aromatic red grape, with an intense and unique note of rose and berries.
Brachetto grape gives its best in the hills around Acqui Terme.
Acqui Terme is a marvellous place , in the middle of the Monferrato hills, with warm days and cool nights, and a perfect soil for aromatic grapes.
The legend says that Julius Caesar used brachetto to seduce Cleopatra.
Today 26 villages around Acqui Terme can grow the grapes to make Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG.
Our Vineyard, Pineto, is 18 yrs old, south faced and create a natural amphitheater. Grapes are picked manually for careful selection.
From the grapes harvested at Pineto, we make our premium Brachetto wines: come and taste Rosè Brut, Pineto, Pineto Passrì , and Grappa di Brachetto !
Special thanks to “Winemosaic” for organizing the event and to “Consorzio del Brachetto” for the support in organizing the presentation.
