Clean and delicate, with a richness of character, Castello Banfi Grappa is a fashionable aperitif, or add some to an expresso for a perfect caffe corretto.
Unlike brandy, which is distilled from wine, Grappa is distilled from the soul of the grape - the solids left behind when the juice of the grape starts on its journey to becoming wine. Few producers have managed to refine this technique as masterfully as Castello Banfi. A premium Grappa produced from the grape skins of Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino, Castello Banfi Grappa was recognized at the "10th Concorso Nazionale Grappe" judging at VinItaly, where it received the highest honor given, the diploma con Medaglia d`Oro. Castello Banfi Grappa is dry and austere with a penetrating, clean finish.
Nose: Earthy, funky, banana-like aromas lead the nose.
Palate: The palate has a slightly viscous feel, with banana and white flower notes and a perky ginger heat on the numbing fade.
Finish: A penetrating, clean finish.
Bottle Size: 750mL
