Description

Details

Bracchetto d'Acqui Contero, 100% Braccetto, Pink, sweet, low alcohol, light fizz! Light cherry red in colour with a rich, persistent mousse and bright floral aromas. The palate is aromatic and has some discernible sweetness but a typical bittersweet note on the finish which keeps it from being cloying. Delightful drinking if you're a fan of Asti or Cava.

The Contero vineyards are situated in a perfect amphitheatre in the commune of Strevi, the heart of one of the best zones for Brachetto in Piemonte. The vines are superbly tended and produce fruit of stunning quality. They are located on steep hills with tufaceous-marl soils which contain layers of fertile clay. The vines are Guyot trained and plated at a density of 4,800 vines per hectare. Grapes are hand-harvested into wooden boxes and the average yield is five tonnes per hectare.
