Refined, soft and elegant with a scent of golden apples and freshly baked bread.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Aromas smack of white lilies and minerals in this yellow green hued spirit. The earthy minerals are echoed on the palate with suggestions of lightly roasted coffee bean and charred vanilla, finishing dry and satiny on the tongue. (Apr 2016)
Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Chardonnay lovers, take note: here’s a grappa for you. With its light gold hue and fresh apple and light vanilla scent, it bears a resemblance to the undistilled wine. Despite the signature grappa heat, it’s still juicy, mouthwatering and flavorful, with a pretty finish. Consider sipping this Chard-based “grappa brandy” alongside aged cheeses. - K.N. (Apr 2014)
