Brachetto D’Acqui D.O.C.G. Spumante£17.36 – £104.16
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
GRAPE VARIETY – Brachetto
PRODUCTION AREA – Acqui Terme, Italy
ALCOHOL – 7%
Recioto Della Valpolicella Negrar£23.00 – £125.00
