Marolo Brunello Grappa (750ml)

SKU #1048301

Paolo Marolo is widely regarded as one of the best grappa producers in the world. He is credited for being a leading innovator in Alba, the heartland of grappa production, for departing from the tradition of working with a continuous still (used for efficiency in mass production), and choosing instead to work with a bain-marie discontinuous still. This alembic requires fresh pomaces and distills very small quantities much more slowly, but yields a grappa that is infinitely more pure, complex, and invigorating, with many dimensions of aromas and flavor. The aromas on this Brunello grappa are clean and fragrant, with the fruity notes that let you know this is grappa, and not anything else. The palate is focused, with strong flavors, but the finish is more gentle, allowing the flavors to really hang in your mouth for a while. This is not the after-dinner firewater you've heard about; this is serious single-varietal grappa.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
