Alois (Campania, Italy)
(Distiller: Distillerie Berta)
Raw matter: Pomace of Casavecchia

This grappa is limpid and crystalline with a pale amber yellow color. The nose denotes intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas of black cherry, prune, vanilla, tobacco, praline, cocoa and honey, with almost imperceptible alcohol pungency. In the mouth has intense flavors with perceptible alcohol pungency which tends to dissolve rapidly, good correspondence to the nose, pleasing roundness, perceptible sweetness. The finish is persistent with flavors of prune, black cherry and honey. This grappa is distilled with a steam operated alembic still and ages in barrique. Alcohol 45%.
