Winemaking Notes: After harvest, the Brachetto grapes, which are sweet and ripe, are separated from their stems and cold macerated for about six hours to extract the color and aromatics. The grapes are then softly pressed, filtered and transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The wine is cooled to stop fermentation when the alcohol reaches 6%.

Tasting Notes: This is a sparkling sweet wine that is quite aromatic. It has bright aromas of strawberry and wild rose. The flavors echo the aromas. The sweetness is balances on the palate, and the wine offers a moderately savory finish with a hint of nutmeg. Serve this delicious wine chilled as an aperitif or paired with desserts.
