Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Grape varieties

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.
