Brachetto d'Acqui is a wonderful Italian sparkling wine with deep rose color and a good bit of sweetness. It has a lovely bouquet reminiscent of strawberries and roses and is a perfect dessert wine that goes fabulously well with chocolate. Brachetto is the grape, and the style is light on its feet (at only 6% alcohol). Icardi was founded in 1914, and Claudio Icarda is the winemaker and current owner. The vines average 35 years of age and are farmed organically and biodynamically.
