Professional Wine Reviews for Bera Brachetto 2016

Rated 90 by Vinous Media
Bright red. Perfumed nose of wild strawberries and vanilla. Then bright, fresh and juicy, with a soft, sweet quality to the red berry cocktail flavors. Finishes long and creamy, with lovely floral lift. Easygoing perfumed Brachetto that will match heavenly with a strawberry tart or any fruit cocktail. Only 6.5% alcohol and lots of flavor, think of this as being not unlike a sweet red Prosecco, if such a wine existed.
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 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.
