The bunches of Brachetto grapes are full and dense, with firm-fleshed berries of a lovely purplish-blue, but what makes them special cannot be seen strolling through the rows of vines: it is the high sugar content and powerful aroma provided by the terpenes. In fact, they can be smelled, but not seen, in the vineyards, which emanate an unmistakable scent of roses. Care and attention when picking the ripe bunches helps to preserve these precious elements, which will manifest themselves, lively and joyous, on the palate. The wine harvest is generally completed by the end of the first week of September. Production is relatively limited, because the total surface area of the vineyards planted to this variety amounts to about one thousand hectares.
