Grappa Cuore Gran Riserva
Nannoni (Tuscany, Italy)
Raw matter: Pomace of grapes from Maremma
Price: € 59.00 - 500ml Score: Wine that excels in its category
This grappa is limpid and crystalline, with a brilliant amber yellow color. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas of prune, honey, vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut, dried fig, black cherry and licorice, 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, balanced sweetness. The finish is persistent with flavors of prune, honey, chocolate and hazelnut. This grappa is distilled in a batch steam operated alembic still and ages for 36 months in French oak casks. Alcohol 42%.
