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.
