Distillerie Berta Bric del Gaian 1998 Moscato d'Asti Grappa

Top 10 Spirits 2012

Distillerie Berta Bric del Gaian 1998 Moscato d'Asti Grappa is one of the most aromatic grappas ever made

GRAPPA

The 1998 Bric del Gaian from Distillerie Berta is among the most aromatic grappas ever made. There's no need to fight through the 44 per cent alcohol, because it is in perfect balance with the Moscato grape-driven aromas. A hint of ginger and vanilla bean are overtaken by the floral notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom. The palate delivers the perfect ripeness of summer-raised peaches, oranges and apricots surrounded by honey and almonds. The pungent and powerful profile of grappa is redirected here into an elegant and approachable spirit of high merit.

Price: $175
