2009 La Corte Brachetto Piemonte "Lunae"

SKU #1057928

You'd think they put roses in the bottle of this slightly fizzy, ever so slightly sweet red wine, whose aroma of the most romantic of flowers is just so unmistakably pretty. A low alcohol and a delightfully light and bright palate impression make this a must for casual parties, warm afternoons, or just sharing a glass with someone you love. Bright red cherries on the nose and palate, no tannin to speak of, and a light fizz and sweetness. This is incredibly enjoyable to guzzle!

Went to the Hollywood Bowl for a little wine and music, and I had to bring dessert? I went with my go-to: chocolate-dipped strawberries and Brachetto. The Lunae didn't disappoint. The nose was lovely, with scents of fresh cut roses. I dare you to find a better combo with chocolate! At just 5% ABV, we drank it all night. Bravo La Corte, bravo!

Slightly sweet, fizzy red booze! Heck yeah! Oh, and it is a screaming deal. Think red Moscato d'Asti, with berries instead of peaches. Then think Mascarpone, Balsamic vinegar and fresh berries.....

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.

- Piedmont is in the Northwestern region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland. Piedmont is predominantly a plain where the water flows from the Swiss and French Alps to form the headwaters of the Po river. The major wine producing areas are in the southern portion of the region in the hills known as the "Langhe". Here the people speak a dialect that is 1/3 French and 2/3 Italian that portrays their historical roots. Their cuisine is one of the most creative and interesting in Italy. Nebbiolo is the King grape here, producing Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition, the Barbera and Dolcetto are the workhorse grapes that produce the largest quantity of wine. Piedmont is predominantly a red wine producing area. There are a few whites made in Piedmont, and the Moscato grape produces a large volume of sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines as well.
