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. The Grappa L’Assoluta from La Mondianese is lovingly obtained from Ruché grapes from Piedmont, Italy, and then aged for a period of six months in apple, pear, cherry and ash woods. This Grappa is a true luxury item, only produced in a very limited quantity and individually numbered bottles, is presented in a beautiful wooden box. It would make a spectacular gift for a loved one, a friend, or even just as a treat to enjoy for yourself. You won’t get another chance like this, once 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.
