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. This Grappa Barbera from La Mondianese is produced with freshly marc of Barbera grapes from Piedmont, Italy, and then aged in ash small barrels that give the spirit its enveloping aromatic flavours. The Grappa is smooth and bursting with flavour with wonderful sandalwood, cherry and vanilla notes. Powerful, rich but still gentle and elegant, this Grappa is perfect for sipping and is a true luxury product with its own box. This is a perfect gift for your loved ones, or even just as a treat to spoil yourself with. It is only produced in a very limited quantity so this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, when they’re gone, they’re gone!
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.
