Additional Information on Bera Brachetto 2013

Winery: Bera

Varietal: Brachetto

In Italy's beautiful northern region of Piedmont, wineries have been cultivating the Brachetto grape for centuries, as it thrives on the cooler, mountainous slopes typical of this area. The Brachetto grape is prized by wineries and wine lovers alike, as it produced remarkably light bodied red wines which capture the essence of a Piedmont summer – delicate, breezy, pretty and packed full of summery flavors of strawberries and fresh mountain grasses. The Brachetto wines are also highly aromatic, and because of their mild tannin content, they are very smooth, light and drinkable, making them ideal for sharing on a warm summer's day. Whilst Brachetto varietal grapes are most commonly used for still wines, several wineries in Italy and elsewhere also use them in the production of sparkling wines, often referred to as 'red Asti' as a result of their finesse and elegance.

Region: Piedmont

The region of Piedmont in the cool, breezy north-western part of Italy is renowned throughout the world for high quality, flavorful and delicious red wines, and for the elegant and refined sparkling wines such as Asti which typify the area. The region is located at the foothills of the Alps, close to the French and Swiss borders, and benefits from some interesting micro-climates formed by its proximity to the mountain range. The key grapes for the fine red wines of Piedmont are Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera – all powerful varietals which are packed full of a range of fruit flavors and which have an affinity for oak making them ideal for aging When it comes to the sparkling Asti, wineries cultivate plenty of Moscato grapes, whose relative transparency make them ideal for expressing their terroir and providing some interesting flavors in the bottle.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
