Additional Information on Malabaila Brachetto Birbet

Winery: Malabaila

Varietal: Brachetto

The Brachetto varietal grape is a delightfully aromatic varietal most commonly associated with Italy's beautiful northern region of Piedmont, home to a stunning range of grapevines and some of the country's finest wines. Brachetto is a mild red wine grape, and is used to make both still and sparkling light bodied red wines, prized for its highly aromatic qualities and the delicate summery flavors it holds. Most commonly, Brachetto wines feature pretty notes of strawberries, with a freshness typical of other Piedmont wines. The thin skins of the grapes mean the wine is low in tannins and creates a silky smoothness to the wines made from them. In recent years, wineries in many New World countries have started experimenting with this grape varietal, in order to make the most of its unique and highly drinkable features.

Region: Piedmont

The beautiful region of Piedmont in the north west of Italy is responsible for producing many of Europe's finest red wines. Famous appellations such as Barolo and Barbaresco are the envy of wine-makers all over the world, and attract plenty of tourism as a result of their traditional techniques and the stunning setting they lie in. The region has a similar summer climate to nearby French regions such as Bordeaux, but the rest of their year is considerably colder, and far drier as a result of the rain shadow cast by the Alps. The wineries which cover much of Piedmont have, over many generations, mastered how to make the most of the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive here, and nowadays are beginning to experimenting with many imported varietals to increase the region's range and meet international demand.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
