Localization: Piedmont, Italy

Tasting notes: One of the most elegant dessert wines as it shows its full fragrance of red berries: an aromatic expression of Bulgarian rose and wild strawberries, the wine is an explosion of pure fruit and freshness and is best drunk young. Intense pink color, fine mousse. Lush aroma, fragrant and aromatic, intense red fruit and strawberries. A sweet, soft and delicate taste with refreshing aromatic finish. Accompanies chocolate-coated strawberries, wild berries, and goes well with dried fruit, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pistachios and figs.

Food Pairing: The most traditional association, with a dessert after the meal or mid-afternoon, is with dry pastries and with oven baked sweets, from Christmas Panettone to jam tarts. Brachetto d’Acqui is one of the few wines throughout the world which can be matched with dark chocolate.

The Domain: he winery's story begins with the nickname "Braida", a name acquired by Giuseppe Bologna who played "fistball", a traditional Piedmont sport, on town and church squares. Giuseppe "Braida" Bologna, a wheelwright by profession, owned a large Barbera vineyard in Rocchetta Tanaro and produced wine for his own and the friend’s consumption. His son Giacomo inherited the vineyard as well as the nickname, which he gave to the winery. Thanks to Giacomo Bologna’s incredible personality and his love for the land, wine and life, he finally achieved his goal of producing superb Barbera at Rocchetta Tanaro. The Barbera grape which was traditionally vinified into a simple acidic wine was thereby lifted to a wine of world-class.

In recent years, "Braida" has expanded and grown, still faithful to the philosophy of Giacomo and Anna Bologna and to their way of understanding life, land, wine and friendships. In 1990, after Giacomo’s premature death, Anna and her children Raffaella and Giuseppe (nicknamed Beppe) carried on and concluded the projects he had initiated. Since the early year 2010 the winery is run by Raffaella and Giuseppe Bologna, representing the third generation of winemakers on the "Braida" winery. Raffaella is responsible for sales and marketing, while Beppe is in charge of the wine making and managing the agricultural part. Wine is their life. They enthusiastically champion wine, its culture and the land on which it grows. This love has also conquered their partners who have become active members of the family: Cristina, Beppe's wife and mother of Greta and Giacomo, works in administration, while Raffaella’s husband, Norbert Reinisch-Bologna, an Austrian doctor, is Braida's export director. Decisions about important projects and investments are always taken jointly, endeavouring to produce high quality wine and supported by a motivated team that tackles daily tasks with energy and enthusiasm.
