Bersano Grappa di Brachetto is made from the pomace of Brachetto grapes grown in Bersano’s estates in Piedmont.
Sampled on 05/12/2013
Slightly mouldy melon, apple and peach (but in an endearing way) with linseed oil and subtle spice.
Fruity peach and pear sweetness balanced by spicy alcohol attack.
Green grape notes bust out at the start of the relatively short finish with spice then smoothing oiliness. There’s plenty of character and a touch of fire to this traditionally styled grappa.
Closure: Synthetic stopper
