Fate or history decreed that the Bera property would finish a tantalizing 400 metres just outside the Barbaresco zone. Typically unperturbed, Walter Bera has gradually developed a collection of the Piemontese classics, with each beautifully made, rich and strongly expressive – and great value. His Moscato is regarded as one of the most consistent in Asti
Often to their surprise, everyone seems to like this lovely light cherry-coloured red with its lightly bubbly, semi-sweet and strawberry and spice flavours. Once rare, Brachetto has comeback as an entrée wine, with cured meats or even spicy foods and some desserts. Shows freshness and zip, with a nice savoury finish.

Bera Brachetto is made from the aromatic red variety of the same name. This frizzante undergoes fermentation using the Charmat method and is macerated with the skins for about six hours. The result is an alluring rosy colored wine with delicate bubbles and buoyantly fruity notes.
