Brachetto d'Acqui DOCG 2018

Ca' Bianca

Ca Bianca Brachetto d’Acqui is a wonderful lightly sparkling and delicately sweet red wine traditional to Italy’s Piedmont region. This unique red is perfect for summer brunch or with berry and chocolate based desserts.

Terroir: The Brachetto d’Acqui is sourced from estate owned vineyards situated above 1000 feet in elevation along the eastern slopes of Alice Bel Colle in Peidmont’s Alto Monferrato region. Vines are densely planted using the traditional Guyot method in soils composed of sedimentary marl. Vineyard yields are kept extremely low.

Vinification: Grapes are hand-picked and transported to the winery where they are immediately crushed and destemmed. The must is cold-macerated for 48 hours followed a cool fermentation in pressure controlled tanks which leads to the light frizzante of the final wine. Fermentation is carefully supervised and halted when the young wine reaches desired alcohol and sugar levels.

Additional Information

The Brachetto d’Acqui is a vibrant ruby red color with a fine mousse. The nose is an alluring perfume of freshly crushed berries that carry through on the palate in a lightly sweet, zesty package.

    Notes of pureed strawberry and milk chocolate are accented by candied kumquat and spice in this tangy, balanced Brachetto. Creamy, with more ripe fruit on the finish. Drink now.
