Professional Wine Reviews for Bera Brachetto 2016

Winery
Valter Bera’s Brachetto Piemonte is slightly sparkling (frizzante), medium-sweet, and low in alcohol. The wine shows typical Brachetto aromas and flavors of roses, sweet plums, and red cherries, and is rich and fruity on the palate. It is the light red wine equivalent of Moscato d’Asti used similarly at the table. Chocolate, a notoriously difficult food to pair with wine, is ideally suited to Brachetto’s sweetness and rich red-fruit profile. Brachetto’s low levels of alcohol are often welcome at the end of a meal and its bubbles awaken the palate. Pair Brachetto with cakes, mousses, or even a bar of chocolate.

Winery Bera

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

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
