Gatij Brachetto d’Acqui DOC 2013

Marchesi di Barolo

Terroir: For the production of this wine, the house uses grapes from the finest vineyards at Alice Bel Colle, Maranzana and Acqui Terme. Guyot system on hills with favorable slopes and with soils predominantly calcareous and clayey.

Vinification: The grapes are crushed and the skins are briefly macerated in the must-for 24 -46 hours at a low temperature. Afterward, the must is racked and is refrigerated to prevent fermentation. The must thus obtained is fermented under pressure in large sealed tanks so that carbon dioxide remains dissolved in the wine. When the level of developed alcohol reaches 5,5° degrees, fermentation is halted through refrigeration. The wine is then filtered and cold, sterile bottled.

Additional Information

Persistent foam with fine and elegant perlage. A pink color tending to cherry- red. Intense, aromatic odor tending toward musky. Sweet and lightly effervescent flavor with hints of the olfactory sensations. This sweet and aromatic wine makes an ideal accompaniment for desserts at the end of a meal.
