Bravo
(BV-33)

A full body red wine strain.

Bravo is a high glycerol producing strain specifically developed for classical red winemaking. This strain also produces high levels of ester compounds and is able to release bound grapes volatiles as a result of its beta-lyase enzymatic activity. Wine produced by Bravo will reveal nuances of red fruit (strawberries, cherries) and rich dark fruit (plum and prunes) with very good intensity. Overall produces elegant wines with complexity and good acidity, Bravo is MLF compatible and can handle a wide range of temperatures.

Bravo is recommended for enhancing smoothness and mouthfeel. It adds aromatic complexity for long ageing wines where post fermentative extraction is important. For youthful red wines, where fruit preservation is key, glycerol will play an important palate-balancing role.
