The Brachetto Docg

There are three types of Brachetto d’Acqui, namely the red wine (also called ‘tappo raso’), the sparkling wine, and the passito; official recognition came in 1996 thanks to the Protection Consortium, the year in which this production was awarded the prestigious DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita – Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin) quality mark. The DOCG has defined more precisely, also from a legal and administrative point of view, the peculiarities of this wine, distinguishing it from other wines.
