Description

3.0 BARRICATA - Grappa Invecchiata / Mazzetti d'Altavilla / Piedmont

Spirits from Italy

The distillation technique has been known in Italy since the 11th century and was later spread by the Jesuits. Grappe are distilled from fermented press residues from winemaking. The use of the so-called pomace is therefore sustainable, because the grapes can be used not only for wine, but also for a wonderful spirit. For a long time, grappa had the reputation of being a drink from poor farmers, but thanks to technical optimizations of the distillation process during the 20th century, Grappa slowly became one of the world's most respected types of spirits, even among gourmets.

The traditional Mazzetti di Altavilla distillery from Altavilla in Monferrato near the famous “truffle town” of Alba in Piedmont has achieved true mastery in the production of Grappe. Strongly connected to tradition, but at the same time always looking for innovation.

The 3.0 Barricata - Grappa Invecchiata is distilled from selected, fresh, and still moist wine pomace from the most selected Piedmontese grapes. It is burned in a discontinuous process in copper pot stills that are indirectly fired with steam. It is then refined in stainless steel containers for at least three months and then stored in chestnut and oak barrels for another twelve months. The 3.0 Invecchiata is a communicative grappa that includes the connoisseur in its polite profile. This marc brandy combines the richness of nature, careful distillation and thoughtful rest in barrels made from the finest woods.

Filled in a modern bottle and with a moderate alcohol content of 40% vol., this Grappa is balanced and refined on the nose. Persistent aromas with notes of cocoa butter and sweet vanilla can be seen. Well balanced on the palate with a taste of almond paste (marzipan) and unroasted dried fruit. Overall, this Mazzetti d’Altavilla distillate leaves a sweetish impression.

At a recommended drinking temperature of around 20 to 22°C, the soft Grappa 3.0 Barricata - Grappa Invecchiata is an excellent way to end any meal and perfectly prepares the taste buds for the dessert.
