Young Single-Vintage Grappa
This grappa is obtained from the distillation of a blend of fermented red grape pomaces originating from wineries located on the Berico Hills and in the province of Vicenza (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 three years. During this time, the grappa takes on a softer and more delicate fragrance.
Despite being aged for so long, Grappa Vicentina preserves its strong taste-olfactory characteristics. Its aroma is reminiscent of fermented pomace and bitter almonds, while the taste is warm, harmonious and well balanced. This is a traditional grappa for connoisseurs.
Serving and pairing
It should be served between 10° and 15° C in a small tulip-shaped glass. This grappa lends itself to the local custom of “rasentin”, to rinse the after-dinner espresso coffee cup with it.
