Type: grappa aged in small oak barrels.
Alcoholic content: 42% alc/vol.
Pomace: from Zibibbo grapes used to produce Ben Ryé on the island of Pantelleria
Distillation: the Zibibbo pomace is distilled in alembic stills using the discontinuous bain-marie method
Description: after a long ageing period in small barrels, the grappa has an antique gold hue and is extremely clear; it is distinctly but not excessively sweet on the palate. The bouquet initially delivers typical citrus notes, followed by a superb aromatic array of fresh and candied fruit (citron, peach, apricot and exotic fruit) blended with a subtle aroma of vanilla.
Serving suggesions: the perfect accompaniment to fruit, plain pastries and biscuits; try it with mature and strong cheeses, sipping slowly
Best served: in small tulip glasses with flared rims at 12-16° C.
At the end of a meal, it compliments chocolate desserts and toasted fruit in general.
