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

Situated in the north-western part of Italy, the region of Piedmont is known worldwide and is highly respected for the quality of the wines produced there. Many of the most successful sub-regions in Piedmont produce many of the world's finest red wines, such as those made from the excellent Nebbiolo grape varietal in areas such as Barolo and Barbaresco. However, the historic wineries which typify this region use a relatively wide variety of grapes, including Dolcetto and Barbera for their red wines, which are typically aged and have a delightful velvety character. Piedmont isn't all about beautifully complex red wines, though, as it is also famed for high quality, elegant sparkling wines, notably the Asti wines made with the white Moscato grape. The region benefits from a range of terroirs which are often well expressed in the sparkling wines, and a wonderfully consistent climate ideal for vineyard cultivation.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' the land of wines so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
