Aged four years in oak casks. Bright pale gold color. Opening sniffs reveal scents of candle wax / crayon. These dissipate to reveal subtle notes of dried apple / apricot. Over several minutes, the aroma sweetens, with a hint of brown sugar emerging. Entry is light and silky. Mid palate builds in concentration, offering sweet stewed apricot and roasted nut flavors. Finishes dry with cocoa and vanilla followed by a light honey/ nougat fade.
A traditional beverage of northern Italy and is considered the oldest distilled all known. Its flavor varies like any other wine or liquor, which depends on the quality, condition, taste, and the type of grape used. Some opt to add a fruit syrup to sweeten and soften a bit, getting a drink of base typical Italian grappa but with a milder flavor.
This Grappa is comprised of 95% magliocco and gaglioppo, with 5% pinot grigio brought in for good measure. Distilled twice on an alembic still, Caffo’s grappa is way less fiery than many would expect from the norm, especially for the price. Enjoy on its own or mixed into cocktails needing that dried fruit and herbal touch.
