Brachetto is a black-skinned Italian grape variety that is used to make sweet and frothy wines from Piedmont, most notably Brachetto d'Acqui. This wine is typically produced as either frizzante (fizzy) or spumante (sparkling), and is known for its high aroma and low alcohol content. The grape's characteristic ruby color is obtained by macerating the grape must with the skins for 2 days. Brachetto is usually consumed young and is best served chilled, often paired with fresh fruits. Despite being a light-bodied wine, Brachetto is highly aromatic, with notes of red and black raspberries, wild strawberries, and rose petals. It is not blended with other grape varieties and is typically aged for 3 months before being released to the public.
