Piedmont This brandy is limpid and crystalline with a deep amber yellow color. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas of prune, dried fig, tobacco, vanilla, cocoa, black cherry, honey, praline, sandal wood 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, smooth and pleasing roundness. The finish is persistent with flavors of prune, praline, cocoa, honey and licorice. This brandy is made from the distillation in copper alembic still of aged Barbera wine and ages for three years in small oak barrels.

Morbido e carezzevole, questo brandy mi è piaciuto moltissimo ed è stata un'ottima scelta per concludere degnamente la serata.
Colore profondo e netto di ambra scurissimo, profumi affascinanti e accattivanti, su tutti cacao e fico secco.
In bocca poi è davvero godibile per morbidezza, nonostante l'alcol (48°!) potrebbe fare pensare a qualcosa di esplosivo, invece è ben equilibrato. Piacevolissimo il finale che lascia in bocca. Ottimo!
