Acquavite Stravecchia di Vinaccia di Brunello per il Sigaro Toscano
Nannoni (Tuscany, Italy)
Raw matter: Pomace of Sangiovese Grosso
Price: € 50.00 - 70cl Score:
This distillate shows a pale golden yellow color, limpid and crystalline. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas of praline, prune, cherry macerated in alcohol, vanilla, dried violet, hazelnut, chocolate and honey, with almost imperceptible alcohol pungency. In the mouth has intense flavors, with alcohol pungency which tends to dissolve rapidly, excellent correspondence to the nose, pleasing roundness, very balanced sweetness. The finish is very persistent with long flavors of prune, cherry macerated in alcohol, honey and praline. This distillate is distilled in a batch steam operated alembic still and ages for 5 years in wood barrels.
