Barbaresco, cl. 70, 42°.
Monovarietal Grappa “Bricco degli Apostoli”
The vine
Docg vine acknowledged by different ministerial decrees, the last of ones in the 1963
including the following communes in Cuneo province: Barbaresco, Neive, Treiso and
San Rocco outlying administrative division of Alba commune.
Barbaresco comes from Lampia, Michet and Rosé sub-varieties, that are types of
Nebbiolo, the queen of dark grapes. The ethimology of its name is debated and not
clear: someone says it could derive from “barbaro”, appellation indicating people who
caused the end of Roman Empire.
Organoleptic-sensory notes
Its good quality is expressed in every single drop of grappa: the bright, white colour
wraps your nose; perfume is strong and persuasive. Palate welcomes its soft,
consistent and lasting taste characterized by spicy, fruity scents.
Coupling
Excellent as digestive after meal and with milk or dark chocolate, good also with small
pastries, cookies or tartlets.
Temperature of service
Grappa is used to be drunk between 9° - 13° C, ideal temperature especially for new,
aromatic grappa. If you have any doubts, it would be better to taste grappa in a cooler
way, in fact, before drinking it, it is always possible to warm it holding the glass in the
palm of your hand.
