Thanks to a lucky coincidence we came into possession in 2006 of this Brandy distilled from Aurelio Ravetto in Bussoleno in the Susa Valley.
Montanaro distillery was founded in 1885 in Gallo d'Alba, in the province of Cuneo, on the initiative of the stills Francesco Trussoni teacher, who had the idea to create the first single varietal grappa history, giving birth to made brandy Barolo.
The high degree 1974 from local wines with low alcohol content and high acidity, has been "forgotten" for more than forty years in the warehouses of the distillery now closed.
The barrels were then acquired by Oscar Farinetti, the dynamic "patron" of Eataly and the distillery Dr. Mario Montanaro.
Brandy a very balanced, tasty and powerful that best expresses all its qualities to combine with powerful Toscani XXL or Spingarda consortium Tuscan cigars.
DISTILLED IN 1974 FOR AGED 34 YEARS, BOTTLED IN 2008.
Color: Amber yellow light to the eye. Glittering like gold.
Profumi: It expresses an elegant olfactory profile, hints of white flowers, characterized by complex spicy aromas that were born and evolved during the aging in oak.
Taste: Balanced tasting, with a long finish resulting from the distillation of pomace of Barolo.
