Additional Information on Ca' Bianca D'aqui Brachetto 2015

Winery Ca' Bianca

Varietal: Brachetto

When it comes to delicate red wine grapes, Italy's Brachetto varietal is enormously popular, and with good reason. This red grape holds plenty of delightful summery flavors, most notably those of strawberries, and is remarkably aromatic and drinkable. As such, it has become popular all over the world, and is now grown in many countries outside of Europe. The grapes have a very low tannin content, which results in a silky wine which slips down the throat, leaving an impression of brightness and mild, juicy flavors Whilst they are most commonly used for the production of light bodied still red wines, there are many wineries which use Brachetto grapes for sparkling varieties, many of which have received high critical acclaim and are increasing in popularity.

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

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.
