About Piedmont Brachetto

About Piedmont Brachetto
Brachetto is a red wine from Piedmont; while it can be a dry wine, its most famous version is a slightly sparkling dessert wine called Brachetto d'Acqui. This is somewhat of a red version of the popular Moscato d'Asti; Brachetto has flavors of red cherry, cranberry and strawberry with a light sweetness. The wine has around only 6% alcohol and is meant to be consumed very fresh with strawberries, peaches or pound cake with vanilla ice cream.

Light ruby garnet color. Fruity, floral, interesting, phenolic aromas and flavors of apple-mint jelly, bay leaf, peppercorn, and crimini mushrooms with a satiny, vibrant, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, amusing, medium-long finish with suggestions of fruit punch with fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A sweet and friendly Brachetto that goes down easy.
