GRAPPA ALEX - Young Grappa
Quality and care for the raw materials are the first and most important steps in the production of a good grappa. For this reason, healthy, fresh and vinous pomace of the vines harvested in dedicated areas are stored with care to preserve all their quality. Alexander White Grappa, created from a blend of the most renowned vines of North-East Italy, is produced during three distillation phases with different temperature. The process takes place in traditional copper alembics, which allow for under vacuum distillation (greater protection of aromas), with bain- marie heating (indirect and therefore more delicate system). Before bottling, this sophisticated Grappa is aged in steel tanks for nearly 6 months, with positive outcomes on its aromatic profile and softness.
Color and Appearance: Colorless, transparent, crystal clear.
Bouquet: Intense and strong, it is characterized by cleanness, fresh and fruity hints of berries, floral notes, and a delicate, slight hint of dried fruit in the finish.
Taste: Pleasant, powerful, vigorous and elegant, it has a balanced softness and a persistent fruity aroma, lasting as a retro-olfactory sensation.
Serving Temperature: 10-12° C
Serving Suggestions: Grappa is perfect after meals, particularly when based on savory meat or cheese courses. It can be enjoyed cold or even chilled, and is an ingredient in cocktails and long drinks. It is a perfect match with dark chocolate and with cakes based on cocoa or dried fruit, especially raisins, chestnuts, dates or dried figs. It is traditionally used to correct espresso coffee and, in Veneto and Friuli, to dilute the last drops of coffee remaining on the bottom of the cup (Resentin): the invigorating effect of coffee, combined with the relaxing action of alcohol, gives a pleasant sensation of well-being and energy.
