They produce wines from Piemonte's main DOC / DOCG regions - predominantly Barbera, Gavi and Moscato, but also including Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero Arneis.Founded in 1954 by Livio Manera, father of the current Managing Director and winemaker Claudio Manera, Araldica has developed over the past 60+ years to become a major winemaking force in Piemonte, supplying wines across the globe. Claudio's wife Lella heads up quality control at Araldica, where she is responsible for the blending and approval of all wines.
Araldica Brachetto d’Acqui 2019
An absolutely delicious and oh so moreish slightly fizzy, partially fermented, naturally low alcohol wine made from the local Piedmontese Brachetto grape variety.
Fermentation happens in a presurised tank with ferment being halted at 5.5% volume alcohol to leave around 100g of sugar per litre. Vibrant ruby in colour, this shows aromas of raspberry sorbet with rose perfumed hints. Sweet raspberries and blackberry palate, mouthwatering acidity and a juicy finish. Serve chilled with your favourite berry desserts.
