Wine Maker: Cascina Tavijn
Grape: Barbera, Ruche
A beautiful grappa made from the pomace of the family’s Ruché distilled by their friends at Cascina La Noce in Biella. Grappa is made by distilling the pomace (a blend of grape seeds, stalks, and stems) leftover from the wine-making process. (It's the perfect example of a zero waste product.) The resulting clear liquor is not light by any means — on average, it contains 35 to 60 percent alcohol by volume!
The grapes aromatic profile really shines here, with gentle floral notes before the fire hits, this is a seriously invigorating drink.
Just 100 bottles were produced.
