Brachetto is a black-skinned Italian wine grape variety responsible for sweet, frothy Brachetto d’Acqui from Piedmont. Since its elevation to DOCG status in 1996, Brachetto d’Acqui has almost always produced its wines either frizzante (fizzy) or spumante (sparkling), with a noticeable level of sweetness. In times past, Brachetto was sometimes made into dry table wine, but this practice is increasingly rare.

Synonyms include: Borgogna, Birbet.

Food matches for Brachetto include:

  • Vitello tonnato (cold, sliced veal with creamy mayonnaise-like sauce)
  • Hazelnut chocolate tart
  • Fresh berries
