This Piemontese classic is unique - a fragrant and seductive, sweet, lightly fizzy red.

Delicately aromatic with aromas of fresh crushed raspberries and rose petals. The palate is lightly sparkling and grapey with fresh red berry fruit. The sweetness is perfectly balanced by mouth-watering acidity and a juicy finish.

The Brachetto varietal may have originated in Provence, but today it is grown in much larger quantities in Italy, in particular in Piemonte. The Brachetto vine is delicate, giving low yields from which sweet red wines with the colour and flavour of strawberries are produced. The grapes for Alasia Brachetto d'Acqui are sourced from vineyards in the Monferrato hills in the south of the province of Asti. These south-west facing vineyards are situated at altitudes of 250 and 400m above sea level. The vines have an average age of 20 years and are grown using the low Guyot trellis system. Soil is limestone clay. The grapes are hand harvested toward the end of August. The crushed grapes are chilled in stainless steel and kept in contact with the skins for 2-3 days. Grapes are pressed in a modern pnuematic press and the must is fermented in a pressurised tank, but fermentation is halted to leave 5.5% ABV and approximately 100g/l residual sugar.

Great aperitif, and perfect for a summers' afternoon drinking. The ideal match for fresh fruit salads.

Just like Roma!

I drank this whilst on a city break to Rome with my friend. It was just as sweet and tasty as i remembered. Have tried other vendors but this one ships super quick and the price is OK. Cheaper isn't always better. Its only 5% so you don't get heady or hungover from it. Would recommend if you have a sweet tooth. its nicer than moscato. You can drink this anytime not just after a meal.

An all time favourite rose

I was recommended this by a waiter in a Manchester restaurant. It did not disappoint. A sweet rose, sparkling and served chilled. It's very easy to drink, perfect in summer. I am so happy that I am able to buy this and enjoy at home. If you like rose and sweet wines, you must try this
