From time to time you just want something refreshing, unique and that takes you back to a more simple time and pleasure in life. That is the feeling I have for Cinzano Brachetto d’Acqui! It is an Italian Sparkling Red Wine. You pop the cork out simply, much like most sparkling wines from around the world and a light mist escapes the bottle with a pinkish hue indicating that this is something out of the ordinary!
As you pour the first flute, aromas of bright red currants and raspberries fill the air reminding me of late summer on the farm where these fruits grew wild in the edge of the woods and thrilled us every time we found a patch of them, as you sip this fine specimen of a Brachetto, your mouth will simply palpate with salivation creating a gentle creaminess that one only feels when dreaming of the richest dark chocolate truffles.
The only thing missing is the memories of the grandparents telling about how things were growing up in northern Italy… this is a wine composed of the romance of memories and passion. Drink now and enjoy forever!
