A spirit resembling a grappa but made with visciola cherries as well as grapes and water from Mount Nerone in the Le Marche region of Italy. This eau-de-vie is described as being distilled in the "old fashioned" way using a bain-marie - which we take to mean as a steam jacket-heated pot still.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/02/2011


Crystal clear.


Pungent perfumed nose with vanilla essence-enriched cake mix nose, hints of lavender, heavy pollen and model maker's balsa wood.


Aggressive, flavoursome palate with perfumed pear, floral flavours and acetone notes.


Slightly oily finish.
