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 Nero from La Mondianese made with a selection of Piedmont grapes is full and soft with hints of raisins and rose, with a long persistence.
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.
