Birbčt

PARTIALLY-FERMENTED GRAPE MUST

Birbèt is made by on-the-skins vinification of the Brachetto grapes grown in the Roero. The Brachetto vine produces long, sparse bunches of small grapes which have very similar aromatic properties to the Moscato variety. Birbèt is a sweet wine which produces a very fine creamy head. Deep red going on ruby, it has a soft, smooth flavor which is round and appealing. Best served young, its intense aromatic qualities make it a great dessert wine.
