Additional Information on Villa Jolanda Brachetto 2015

Winery: Villa Jolanda

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: Veneto

Veneto has, for hundreds of years, been one of Italy's most important wine regions, and many of the finest wineries and appellations near the Adriatic coast have reached levels of international fame and recognition unmatched by other parts of the country. Amarone, Valpolicella and Bardolino DOC regions are all widely understood to be amongst the best places in the world for flavorful, complex and interesting red wines, and the white Soave wines produced on the foothills of the Alps are enjoyed across the globe for their clarity and crispness. The region benefits from a range of micro-climates, protected from the harsh central European winters by the mountain range, and the generations of expertise and dedication to quality and innovation shown by the hundreds of wineries in the region.

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.
