This special Grappa Riserva di Moscato, already aged for two years in oak, is then aged for 24 months in barrels from the island of Madeira, previously used to age the Madeira of the most prestigious wineries. We have experimented with the use of Madeira barrels, previously used to age whisky, with our Grappa, with exceptional results from a qualitative point of view. The engaging and fruity scent and the rich, refined flavour with its floral aftertaste, closely resemble those of the Madeira previously contained in these barrels.
This grappa is distilled from the marc of grapes grown on the finest hills in the area where Moscato d’Asti is traditionally produced.
After the soft pressing of the grapes, the pomace, still unfermented, is immediately sent to the distillery for storage and fermentation. Then the marc is placed in small copper batch stills and distilled through indirect exposure to steam.
The color is amber-yellow, tending to copper-yellow. It has a characteristic aroma with remarkably intense and penetrating Moscato scents. The soft taste is full, warm, harmonious and it has an extremely persistent finish.
