Ricci Curbastro (Lombardy, Italy)
(Distiller: Distilleria Peroni Maddalena)
Raw matter: Pomace of Curtefranca
Price: € 23.50 - 70cl Score: Wine that excels in its category
This grappa stravecchia shows a brilliant yellow amber color, limpid and crystalline. The nose reveals intense, clean and pleasing aromas of hazelnut, honey, tobacco, licorice, chocolate, dried fig and date, 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, balanced sweetness, pleasing roundness. The finish is persistent with flavors of hazelnut, honey, chocolate and date. This grappa is produced with a steam operated alembic still and ages in casks. Alcohol 45%.
