Wine Details

Malvira Brachetto Birbet NV

The Birbet is a sparkling red wine made from 100% Brachetto, the black-skinned variety best known for its sweet and frothy dessert wines. This is a fun and fruity, highly aromatic wine with classic perfumes of strawberry, raspberry and red roses. It is lovely paired with chocolate, fruit desserts and panna cotta, but can also accompany savory treats like light antipasti and cheeses.
