Grappa Cuore di Vinsanto Stravecchia
Nannoni (Tuscany, Italy)
Raw matter: Pomace of Vinsanto
Price: € 59.00 - 50cl Score:
This grappa shows a brilliant golden yellow color, limpid. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas of honey, hazelnut, tobacco, dried fig, chocolate, licorice, date and raisin, with almost imperceptible alcohol pungency. In the mouth has intense flavors with perceptible alcohol pungency which tends to dissolve rapidly, balanced sweetness, pleasing roundness. The finish is very persistent with flavors of honey, raisin and dried fig. This grappa is distilled in a batch steam operated alembic still and ages for 18 months in French oak casks.
