The wine is ruby red in color with aromas of ripe red fruit and well amalgamated notes of vanilla and coffee. The palate enjoys a notable support from the acidity, which maintains a pleasurable freshness and persistence of flavor along with soft and sweet tannins which guarantee excellent drinkability.
Abbagnac Grappa is a marc brandy distilled from a mixture of selected grape skins from the Neustift monastery winery and matured for at least 6 months in oak casks. Cask ageing imparts a light tobacco colour to the brandy which is characterised by a fruity-complex bouquet and an especially multifaceted spectrum of flavours.
Intensely ruby, its colour is almost impenetrable. As well as its visual consistency, the delicate aroma is reminiscent of small fruits of the forest. The subtle oak ageing brings these soft fruity aromas to the fore. The palate is initially soft, smooth and harmoniously rounded.
Grapes: Sangiovese 75%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Syrah 5%. Colour: ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet: complex with hints of mature fruits and vanilla. Taste full bodied and soft, suggesting a velvety sensation on the palate.
