Interesting facts:

Brachetto’s origin is highly disputed, with some claiming that it comes from Nice, in France. Being the playful wine that it is, Brachetto is historically most highly identified with the Commedia dell’Arte character Gianduja da Gioan d’laduja (Johnny of the Jug). He proportedly “drew inspiration for his bubbly high spirits from this fizzy ruby red with a fragrant foam.” The legend of its Roman origins, however, best illustrates the wines inherently seductive nature: The legend tells how in Roman times, first Julius Caesar followed then by Mark Antony, sent many wineskins of the Vinum Acquense to Egypt and to the court of the famously beautiful Cleopatra before their arrival, which the queen is said to have used generously to rekindle the passion of her legendary lovers. – Teatro Naturale, Brachetto d’Acqui: Pleasant Red Bubbles http://www.30minutedinnerparty.com/2010/brachetto-dacqui-a-hot-pink-party-in-a-bottle
