Why we love it
Grappa is an Italian spirit, strong, brandy-like, drink made from grape skins, stems and seeds left over after pressing the grapes for wine. One of the more complex Grappa’s, obtained from Moscato grapes grown in Piedmont, aged in acacia wood barrels for at least 36 months. This Grappa has a well-balanced, soft and full taste that is almost sweet with the typical floral aromas of the Moscato grapes.
The artisan who made it
On the beautiful hills of Montemagno, overlooking Castagnole Monferrato, is located La Mondianese winery which is run by Mirko Meneghello and Stefania Negro. Driven by their passion, they have restored an old farmhouse and created a brand new, modern cellar surrounded by six hectares of vineyards, in the Piedmont hills, in one of the smallest DOC, in the area of the Ruche’. Along with Ruche’, they produce other native Piedmont grape varieties such as Grignolino and Barbera d’Asti.
