  • Brachetto D’Acqui D.O.C.G. Spumante

    £17.36£104.16

    750ml Bottles

    This delicately sweet and aromatic sparkling dessert wine is produced from Brachetto grapes grown in the hills  around Acqui Terme to the northwest of Genoa.  As a result of the ideal exposure and altitude these grapes are exposed to, the microclimate in this area helps product a wine that favours the development of aromas of typical intense bouquet but with delicate notes of musk, rose and violet. The resulting sparkling wine is sweet, well-balanced with moderate alcohol.

    Recommended combination with food: desserts, pie crust with strawberries and fruit, cream with fruits

    Serve at 10-12°C
