Vinification Notes

100% Brachetto d’Acqui . After crushing, grapes are macerated on the skins for 3 to 4 days in order to extract the desired color; the juice is then clarified and aged in stainless steel tanks at 0 degrees C until ready for the second fermentation that takes place in temperature- controlled pressurized tanks up to 4 atmospheres

Tasting Notes

delicate  ruby red, sweet and sparkling with fine bead, it expresses the elegant aromas of roses and raspberries, typical of the Brachetto grape.  Aromatic, delicate and harmonious on the palate. Perfect with strawberries, red fruit, fruit salad, all kinds of desserts or just great to relax with anytime. Ideal in the preparation of cocktails and refreshing, thirst-quenching drinks.

Serving temperature: 8°C
Available in 0.75 litre bottles

Vineyards

The Brachetto grape is the fruit of the vines that have existed in the area around Acqui since Roman times. Our best vineyards are located in the Pineto Valley, and are south-east facing, 300 meters above sea level in the cooler hills with good day-night temperature swings for the development of terpenes and aroma. Classic Guyot vine training system used, grapes are hand-picked the first 10 days of September.
