Other reviews... Compared to most fiery grappas, this one enters aged brandy territory. It has a bright topaz hue and a big, butterscotchy flavor accented by clove and hot cinnamon sparks, with a drying feel. Pair it with a rich, fruity dessert. 91 points -

Notes from the the producers... Amber, with great aromatic richness. A scent of spices, brioche and pastry, orange and candied fruit. Warm, velvety and persistent, in one’s mouth it confirms its aromatic shades with the addition of apricot fruit notes, vanilla and bitter almond. It should be served at room temperature wide balloon-type glass. Its perfect to conclude a meal, even accompanied with a good cigar. Unforgettable if coupled with foie gras, dark chocolate or chocolate-based warm desserts, also perfect if added to ice-cream or to exalt the fragrance of prawn risotto.
