Young Single-Vintage Grappa
This grappa is obtained from the distillation of a blend of fermented red grape pomaces of the Carmenere and Raboso varieties originating from wineries located in the Veneto region.
Traditional method distillery
FRATELLI BRUNELLO’s distillery, has used since the beginning a few discontinuous stills that are still in operation. It provides low-pressure direct steam at low temperatures. It consists of 4 copper heating boilers, just like the traditional system. The distillation cycle is very slow and involves the processing of small batches of pomace. Each distillation cycle lasts one hour to one hour and a half.
The grappa is stored in inert stainless steel tanks for at least 24 months. During this time, the taste smooths out and the grappa takes on a rounder and more delicate fragrance.
Despite being stored for so long, Grappa Montegalda preserves its strong taste-olfactory characteristics. Its aroma is reminiscent of the red grape pomace it came from, while the taste is warm, harmonious and well balanced. This is a traditional grappa dedicated to the Veneto region.
Serving and pairing
It should be served between 10° and 15° C in a small tulip-shaped glass. This grappa pairs extremely with aged Asiago cheese and it lends itself to the local custom of “rasentin”, to rinse the after-dinner espresso coffee cup whit it.
