Our true passion for the aromatic grape varieties of South Piedmont motivated us to purchase a second wine company in the home of the Brachetto Doc located in Bistagno. This area is quite unique with a perfect pedoclimate facilitating the development of the Brachetto grape and achieving great results.

Average yield hectare/hl.38

PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY
After harvest the Brachetto grapes, which are now sweet and ripe, are separated from their stalks and transferred to the pneumatic press in preparation for Cryo-maceration. Cryo-maceration extracts and fixes both colour and aromatic substances. After this preliminary stage of approximately 5 or 6 hours, the grapes are soft pressed.
They are then filtered and transferred to a refrigerated store at 0°C in order to stop fermentation activity. After this point the product is kept in steel tanks; which retain the carbon dioxide and heat the product, which remains completely sugary, to 15°C. The purpose of this procedure is to promote the fermentation process which will reach 6% vol. of alcohol.
The product is then cooled to a temperature of 0°C in order to stop further fermentation. Only once this process is complete can the product be finally called Piemonte Brachetto.

TASTING NOTES
