Partially fermented grape must
Birbet is made from the wine-making of the Brachetto grapes grown in the Roero region. The Brachetto vine produces long, sparse bunches of small grapes which have very similar aromatic properties to the Moscato variety.
Birbet is a sweet wine which produces a very fine creamy head. Light red, with bright ruby nuances, it has a soft, smooth flavour which is round and appealing. Best served young, at a temperature of 7-8°C, it goes very well with desserts at the end of a meal for its intensity and aromatic typicity that recalls the scent of pink roses. Also pleasant as a refreshing aperitif in the hot season, thanks to its low alcohol content.
