Castello di Spessa (Italy)

Friuli-Venezia Giulia
(Distiller: Distilleria De Mezzo)
Pomace of Conte di Spessa wine (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc)
Grappa Grappa Score:

Friuli-Venezia Giulia This grappa is limpid and crystalline with a deep amber yellow color. The nose reveals good personality with intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas of vanilla, tobacco, chamomile, dried fig, caramel, hazelnut, dried plum, chocolate, coffee, ripe banana and cinnamon with almost imperceptible alcohol pungency. In the mouth is smooth and intense, elegant, with a good sweet hint well balanced by alcohol which tends to rapidly dissolve, harmonic and balanced. The finish is very persistent with a pleasing sweet hint and good flavors of vanilla, caramel, dried plum and hazelnut. Truly well made. This grappa is distilled with a discontinuous steam alembic still in small copper boilers and ages for 15 years in the barriques used for the aging of Pinot Bianco di Santarosa.

Alcohol: 40% 18 °C
(64 °F)
