Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG

"Il Furetto"
Winemaking Philosophy

The Brachetto grapes used in this wine come from the Acqui area in the Alto Monferrato district. The different composition of the soils (rich in sand, lime and clay) gives the wine a unique expressive versatility, emphasizing finesse and elegance, as well as body and intensity. 

Due to the high sugar content and the strong aromaticity conveyed by terpenes, Brachetto is distinguished by the unmistakable scent of roses. After a short period of cold maceration and soft pressing, the must is kept at a low temperature until fermentation, which makes it naturally sparkling.

Tasting Notes
  • Colour: shimmering red subtly tinged with pink.
  • Bouquet: richly aromatic, intense crisp fruit particularly strawberry and cherry, hints of rose petals.
