Brachetto

Already loved by the romans 

The large-berried red Brachetto grape is a variety found almost exclusively in southern Piedmont, where it has been grown for many centuries in the provinces of Asti and Alessandria. The Brachetto grape was forgotten for a long time, until a group of vintners rediscovered it. Today it is grown on approximately 1,000 hectares. Though the grapes ripen late, they are very productive. Sweet and liquor-like wines are produced from this highly aromatic variety, which even the Romans appreciated. It is still disputed whether the Brachetto grape is related to the French cultivar Braquet Noir.
