Marenco Brachetto D'Acqui DOCG Pineto
Can't get enough of Marenco's Brachetto? Neither can weThe Brachetto grape is the fruit of the vines that have existed in the area around Acqui since Roman times. Marenco's best vineyards are located in the Pineto Valley, and are south-east facing, 300 meters above sea level in the cooler hills with good day-night temperature swings for the development of terpenes and aroma. Grapes are hand-picked the first 10 days of September, using the classic Guyot vine training system.
Did you know? Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG is the eternal second, the slightly snubbed brother of the noblest Asti Spumante, despite being a wine with a glorious past, known since the Roman times, with the name of Vinum Acquense.
This wine was considered aphrodisiac nectar because of its sweetness and the legend says that Cleopatra was fond of it and both Julius Caesar and Marco Antonio freed several amphorae in the company of the Egyptian queen. But we well know that Greeks and Romans “drank differently” and if it was a sweet wine even better since they used to cut wine with honey.
Of course, there is no official proof or document, this is only a legend, yet this ancient wine was sweet and aromatic, just like our friend Brachetto: maybe it’s just a coincidence or maybe he managed to survive the millennia.boundbywine is proud to have Marenco on board and support their efforts in sustainability - in all form of the word. Hitting all 3 pillars, economic, environmental and social. Marenco is the epitome of sustainable future of wine making.
