Why we love it
The Brachetto, very little known outside the area of production is a slightly sparkling sweet wine made with Brachetto grapes. This wine is light bodied, very aromatic with distinctive notes of strawberries, refreshing, summery. The Brachetto Suri Vigin makes a perfect end of meal wine and it matches wonderfully with dry pastries, strawberries and berries.
The artisan who made it
The Icardi winery, located in Piedmont, is run by brother and sister Claudio and Mariagrazia,they have taken over from their father, who founded the winery. Claudio is an oenologist and a firm believer in organic methods and as such, some of their vineyards are grown following biodynamic techniques. Mariagrazia, on the other hand, works in the winery and travels around the world to promote their wines and have vineyards in some of the best area of Piedmont, from Barolo to Barbaresco, from Asti, to Alba, including a small vineyard of Pinot Nero.
