FAQs about Brachetto

Unlike other red wines in its family, Brachetto is not typically consumed at room temperature. Rather, the unique frizzante quality of this wine makes it ideal for enjoying when it is chilled to between 46 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The light effervescence of this special wine is particularly outstanding when enjoyed at this cooler temperature.

While wine can be enjoyed from any kind of vessel, most sparkling wines are typically served in tall Champagne flutes that are intended to preserve the integrity of the bubbles. However, the composition of Brachetto makes it better suited to enjoy in a red wine glass. If you would like to get even more specific, some vinophiles suggest pouring Brachetto into glasses made for Bordeaux wines. This glass style is taller than other red wine glasses with a larger bowl that allows the fruity bouquet to develop and ripen.

Properly storing any wine is essential to enjoying peak flavor, but storage techniques do not have to be overly complicated. Dessert wines, including Brachetto, do well when they are stored at 55 degrees Fahrenheit and ideally lying flat on their sides out of sunlight to maintain the wine's integrity. While some wines are enjoyed hundreds of years after they are bottled as the flavor deepens, unopened bottles of wines like Brachetto are best enjoyed while they are still young. Ideally, Brachetto wines are particularly satisfying when they are used within about 6 months of purchase. Instacart offers a variety of Brachettos for you to enjoy as an aperitif with dessert, and can be at your door in as little as 2 hours!
