Tasting Notes: Aromatically spicy characteristics and intensely fruity sensations are typical of the grapes from which this grappa is produced. Results in a skillful combination of elevated frankness, balance, and a final persistence that result in a lovely aqua vitae.
Food Suggestion: Grappa is a digestif. In Italy, they call grappa “healthy water” because, at the end of a rich meal, they love to sip it while relaxing and digest. You can drink it straight, but you can also use it in cocktails, cooking, or alongside an espresso. Try soaking figs in grappa for a few days and you have an instant after-dinner drink. Or try leveraging grappa’s digestif qualities and using it intermittently throughout the meal. Using the right grappa glass is key. A good grappa glass is generally tall and narrow with a slightly wider opening at the top, to allow for the aromas to be enjoyed.
