SWEET WINE

MASSUCCO BIRBET

Is a red Italian wine grape variety grown predominantly in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. At one time the grape was thought to be related to the French wine grape Braquet, but recent thought among ampelographers is that the two are distinct varieties. In Italy’s region of Piedmont the grape is somewhat more widespread: production mostly falling within an area of the provinces of Asti andAlessandria between the rivers Bormida and Belbo plus various parts of the province of Cuneo.

Birbet  tend to produce light-bodied, highly aromatic wines with distinctive notes of strawberries.

The grapes ripen towards the half of September. The vinification provides for a short period of cold maceration of the grape must (36-48 hours). After the fermentation is stopped when the Birbet is still sweet by the refrigeration. The Birbet should be drunk young within two years to appreciate his potentiality. At sight it is rich of very fine froth and presents a red-ruby colour with garnet  reflections; at the olfaction it has an intensely perfume of fruits, with a typical and unmistakable bouquet; at the taste is sweet, delicate, well balanced by the acid fraction that gives back a pleasant wine.

              FLUTE


This glass, called flûte, has a narrow and tall body in order to encourage the development of perlage in sparkling wines. Its length makes it suitable for dry sparkling wines generally characterized by a less refined perlage with coarser bubbles. The very narrow diameter favor a slow development and continuous carbon dioxide as well as allowing a good concentration of delicate aromas towards the nose.
