Capovilla Grappa di Bassano
From Italy's Distillati Capovilla comes this Grappa di Bassano, produced using the pomace of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Vespaiolo grapes. The pomace is distilled slowly at a low temperature thanks to the use of a bain-marie method. It's rather rare to see a grappa named 'di Bassano', at it requires the liquid to be made only with pomace local to the Veneto town of Bassano del Grappa.
The grappa is fairly floral, namely white flowers, pear blossom and lychee, with a touch of orchard fruit and a savoury hint of cut herbs.
