Pineto is one of the Marenco family’s eight vineyards. This single vineyard Brachetto is part of the Acqui appellation which received its DOCG classification in 1996.

Brachetto is a traditional red wine with pleasant effervescence that has been produced in the northwest Italy since Roman times. Today, it is often considered the red sibling of Moscato d’Asti.
