About The Wine

If you love chocolate, Brachetto is the wine you've been missing. Lightly fizzy, semi-sweet, with the incredible smell of roses, this wine must be experienced to be appreciated.

The Ca' dei Mandorli, of Paul and Stefano Ricagno, is a wine Company in Alto Monferrato has been producing wine for over two centuries. Father and son today work in synergy, in order to find modern and innovative solutions, typical of the new generations, while strongly maintaining the roots and the tradition that characterize this historical winery. Stefano, who represents the fifth generation, has a degree in “Viticoltura and Enologia”; he is wine passionate and controller of the quality of its products.

The philosophy of Paul and Stefano follows the love for the earth and its vineyards, for the human resources, the engagement in the hard but rewarding job of the earth. The passion of an activity that not only proposes the wine, but also a history, a territory, a landscape, and the values that it carries.

The grape stalks are removed before pressing and the pressed grapes are transferred to stainless steel horizontal containers and kept for about 7 days at a controlled temperature. In order to extract the color and primary aroma, the wine is pumped over for 10 minutes at hourly intervals. Fermentation is interrupted by cooling and filtering. The must is stored at 32° F until the second fermentation takes place in airtight tanks to reach the appropriate alcohol content and obtain a fragrant effervescence.

Tasting Notes:Red Wine. 100% Brachetto. In the glass, the wine is purple with a touch red. Aromas of roses explode out of the glass followed by strawberry, cranberry, and sweet cherry. The palate leads with a pleasant sparkle and a tasty, inviting finish.
