Torba Nera

Castagner (Italy)

Pomace of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Prosecco
Grappa Grappa Score:

Veneto This grappa shows an intense amber yellow color, limpid and crystalline. The nose reveals good personality with intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas of smoked, leather, vanilla, tobacco, licorice, chocolate, coffee, honey and hazelnut, with imperceptible alcohol pungency. The mouth is intense with perceptible although not intrusive alcohol pungency which tends to dissolve rapidly, good correspondence to the nose, pleasing smoothness, balanced sweet hint, agreeable. The finish is very persistent with long flavors of chocolate, licorice, hazelnut and coffee. A well made grappa distilled with continuous and discontinuous alembic stills and aged for 6 months in cherry wood casks and for 2 years and a half in barrique. The pomace is smoked before being distilled.
