Importer Note:


A dessert wine and among the most elegant and pleasant, it is best consumed when young when it truly expresses the fragrance of the grape. These include tantalising notes of Bulgarian rose and mature fruits with a fresh, lively and musky taste. Braida's Brachetto d'Acqui is probably the only wine in the world, which above all, marries well with chocolate.



Fermentation of Brachetto takes place in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature environment. Maceration on the skins lasts 36-48 hours producing a must of only 3% alcohol. A second fermentation takes place in sealed tanks for several days followed by clarification and stabilizing. Finally the wine sees a short period of ageing in the bottle prior to release.



Colour: Soft, light ruby red hue with a persistent, spritely foam


Nose: Highly aromatic bouquet of Bulgarian roses and delicate red fruits


Palate: Sweet and playful, this wine displays its aromas clearly on the palate and leaves a musky, fresh and clean finish.


Alc/Vol: 5.50%


Ageing Capacity: 1-2 years

Details

Importer Note:

Giacomo Bologna - known as ‘Braida’ – inherited his love of barbera from his wheelwright father’s small plot of the grape in the town of Rocchetta Tanaro in Piedmont. He determined he would use it to create wines as subtle and complex as the best pinot noir and nebbiolo and succeeded. Along the way, the world stood up and took notice and now Braida wines such as the Bricco dell’Uccellone and Ai Suma are renowned for their elegance and suitability for ageing.

The estate, owned by the Bologna family since 1961, is run today by Anna Martinengo and by Giacomo's children, Giuseppe and Raffaella Bologna. It stands on an overall area of 70 hectares of which 40 are vineyard and 30 occupied by meadows, woodland and sown crops. The estate agronomist is Federico Curtaz and the enologist Giuseppe Bologna.
