A unique grappa in that it is vintage dated: only the pomace from a single vintage is distilled. The pomace from the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet France grapes used for Tenuta San Guido’s Sassicaia is distilled and then aged for four years before being finished in the barrels used to age the wine. The result is an elegant, complex and warming spirit that is herbal, grassy, fruity and floral with notes of coffee, licorice, honey, vanilla and cocoa. The barrel aging rounds out the edges and smoothens it out. For those that think they do not like grappa, try this.
