About the Wine: Stefano Perrone’s Bigarò is one of Piedmont’s best aperitivo wines. Bigarò is a softly sweet, gently effervescent salmon-colored sparkler made from Brachetto and Moscato grapes. The Muscat and Brachetto combine to provide the best of what each has to offer. Similar to Moscato in sweetness, the Perrone Bigarò substitutes red fruits for Moscato’s typical tropical fruits. Enjoy wild strawberry, raspberry and rose notes.

Vineyard Notes: The vines average between 25 and 60 years old. Perrone's vineyards face northwest. Stefano Perrone believes that ripeness is easy to achieve if yields are kept reasonable. His vineyards cool down in the evening and, thus, are able to retain more acidity and freshness. Harvest is done by hand.

Winemaking Notes: Grapes are softly crushed in order to preserve all fragrances. The must macerates with the pomace for 4-5 days to extract all the color and the aromatic patrimony. After destemming, fermentation is carried out at a low temperature in an autoclave.

"The rose colored dessert wine (Moscato and Brachetto) offers up floral red raspberries, cinnamon, flowers, sweet herbs and a host of other aromas and flavors. A perennial favorite."

    The 2021 Rose Bigaro (50% Moscato Bianco, 50% Brachetto) is one of the most distinctive sweet wines in all of Italy. Exotic floral and spice accents soar out of the glass. Rose petal, mint, sage, dried herbs and hard candy play off bright acids and an overall feeling of crystalline energy. This is a terrific showing.
