THE GRAPE: Brachetto is a red wine produced in Piedmont, starting from the vine of the same name (Brachetto) which is highly aromatic with intense nuances of strawberries. The characteristics of the vine support its use for the production of sweet wines, especially sparkling wines, the most famous of which are produced in the Acqui Terme area but present in most provinces of Piedmont. 

VINTNER'S NOTE: Spuma Rossa (Italian for "pink fizz")  is made through the collaboration between Sergio Neri at HVV and the Botto family, vintners at Convento Cappuccini in Piedmont. The long friendship and trust between our families resulted in a superior product that is specially crafted for customer who enjoy a fruity and sweet bubbly wine. The wine is described as "frizzante" or "fizzy" to distinguish it from the fully carbonated "spumante" or sparkling wine.

SPUMANTE SECCO

ESTATE CELLARED

Off-Dry

BLEND: 50% Moscato 50%Glera

VINEYARD  LOCATION : Ricaldone, Piedmont, Italy

YEARLY PRODUCTION: 150- 200  cases

TASTING NOTES: Clean, dry, and a well-balanced sparkling wine. Ideal for hors dÍoeuvres, cocktails, seafood, and toasting for special occasions. A new Hopewell Valley Vineyards favorite.     Serve chilled.

THE GRAPE: The Glera grape is one of the local white grape varieties present mainly in the Veneto region and is the base for the well known "Prosecco" sparkling wine. The grapes express different notes depending on the climatic conditions and the types of soil including scents of citrus fruit and green apple. For Moscato grape information please view the Bramante grape paragraph.

VINTNER'S NOTE: Another creative collaboration between the Neri and Botto family (see Spuma Rossa vintner's note). Our Spumante Secco is a sparkling wine that is made in a traditional Italian method  called the Charmat Method. "Spumante" means sparkling wine and "secco" simply means dry in Italian.  The re-fermentation process happens in a pressurized tank, instead of in a bottle, and then the wine is bottled in an isobaric machine to preserve  carbonation.
