This wine is obtained from the vinification of the grapes Brachetto del Roero which was always present in the territory (grand parents called it as “bragat”), but there are few historical data on it. The beginning of the wine Birbet, which in dialect is referred to a mischievous child, is recent: it is due to the hard work of the producers of the Roero which were able to bring honour to this vine that was disappearing. This vine produces very long bunch of small grapes with an intense colour and an aromatic characterization which is comparable to that of the wine Moscato.
The grapes ripen towards the half of September. The vinification provides for a short period of cold maceration of the grape must (36-48 hours). After the fermentation is stopped when the Birbet is still sweet by the refrigeration.
At sight it is rich of very fine froth and presents a red-ruby colour with garnet reflections; at the olfaction it has an intensely perfume of fruits, with a typical and unmistakable bouquet; at the taste is sweet, delicate, well balanced by the acid fraction that gives back a pleasant wine.
For his aromatic strength the Birbet is the ideal companion of fruit salads, sweets and is also excellent as aperitif.
