Monovarietal Grappa “Bricco degli Apostoli”
Gavi, cl. 70, 42°.
The vine
Docg wine made only with Cortese grapes. The land of origin includes 10 communes
of Alessandria province, among which Gavi. The first official document quoting Cortese
vine is the Ampelography of 1798 editing by Conte Nuvolone, assistant manager of
the Agriculture Society of Turin. The text highlights the length of the bunch, the yellow
colour and the size quite big of its grape.
Organoleptic-sensory notes
Refinement is its distinguishing mark. Delicate taste and elegant perfume.
The mix of almond scent, citrus and green leaf herbs is a further quality note.
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.
