Ceretto Grappa Di Moscato
Notes sourced from Enoteca Sileno
Grape variety: 100% Moscato
Region: The north west region of Piemonte in the area around the villages of Barbaresco and Barolo.
Production: A small vapour steam boiler is filled with freshly fermented grape mark. The vapour begins to rise at 80°C that includes the alcohol and other materials that enrich the grappa. In the column where the vapour forms into droplets the vapour is cooled and further vapourised many times.
The first distillation formed in the condenser (the head) is discarded. In the central phase the heart of the Grappa, rich in substance and aroma is formed. In the final phase (the tail) is also discarded. With fresh grape mark the cycle of distillation can recommence.
Producing grappa from Moscato marc is often a hard undertaking due to the immediate comparison that is made between the grappa and the wine produced from the Muscat grape, but we believe we have produced a grappa that reflects all the aromatic characteristics of the grape, with the Moscato touch unmistakable. The absolute finesse of the aromas is joined in the mouth by an extreme softness and a sweet Muscat aftertaste, which arouses lovely, lasting aromatic impressions, which are not covered by the alcohol content.
