BIRBÈT

The beginning of the wine Birbet, which in dialect is referred to a mischievous child, is recent: it is due to the hard word of the producers of the Roero which were able to bring honour to this vine that was disappearing.

The Birbet should be drunk young within two years to appreciate his potentiality. 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.
