BRACHETTO

Brachetto is a red Italian wine grape variety grown predominantly in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. At one time the grape was thought to be related to the French wine grape Braquet, but recent thought among ampelographers is that the two are distinct varieties. In Italy’s region of Piedmont the grape is somewhat more widespread: production mostly falling within an area of the provinces of Asti and Alessandria between the rivers Bormida and Belbo plus various parts of the province of Cuneo. At Canelli, on the border between the hills of Asti and the Langhe proper, the grape is known as Borgogna.

The most notable wine here is the red Brachetto d'Acqui Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) which is made in both still and spumante (fully sparkling) versions. The Piemonte Brachetto Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC), also a red wine, is made with a minimum of 85% Brachetto; it is usually still, but may be frizzante (lightly sparkling). The grape is also used for up to 10% of the blend for the Ruché-based Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato DOC.

  1. d'Soumah Brachetto 2016

    90pts - James Halliday 'Australian Wine Companion

    "Made with a sweet core but with full-strength alcohol. A perfect dessert-style wine for a picnic lunch. Fuchsia-crimson & extravagantly perfumed. Rose petals & rose water, stone fruit, raspberries, ripe strawberries. It's refreshing & delightful at once."

    The sweetness of the wine comes from picking the fruit later with higher levels of natural sugar, then stopping fermentation before the wine is completely dry. Whats left is a low alcohol, delightfully still dessert wine that tastes like roses & strawberries & is perfect to accompany berries, fruit pies & soft cheeses.
