Trentasel Brachetto d Acqui, Borgo Isolabella 50cl
It’s not that often that a sweet red renders us speechless, but one sip of this wonderful wine was all it took. Better known in it’s sparkling form, the Brachetto grape has an irresistible combination of fresh violet petal and wild strawberry that works beautifully when turned into a dessert wine. Gently harvested and crushed, with slow gentle fermentation to capture all the amazing aromatics – a basket of fresh flowers on the nose; rose, violet, lavender… - then sweet but fresh strawberry and raspberry fruit, lavender and ‘violet creams’. Just a friendly 8%! Fantastic with fresh pastries or fruit tarts; the Isolabellas suggest young, creamy blue cheese, and even lighter pates.

Producer: The Isolabella family has achieved a great deal in a short space of time and is making some truly remarkable wines which are somehow still under the radar of the English-speaking wine press.
Husband and wife team Lodovico and Maria Teresa, stepped out of careers in Milan law into fine wine, building on family background in vermouth and liqueurs, and who could blame them? These sunny, wooded vineyards are now producing some beautifully fragrant, ‘pure’ wines under the guidance of the great oenologist Giuliano Noe and with son, Francesco, are already garnering top reviews in Italy.
