Description

This grappa was distilled from the marc of the single vineyard Ginestra in Monforte d'Alba. From the Ginestra grapes, the Conternos, much acclaimed in professional circles, produce their Barolos. Paolo Conternos Grappa is distilled by the renowned Distilleria Marolo in Alba, where it is aged in barriques for several months. The Grappa Ginestra presents itself in the nose with typical grappa notes, which remind of liquorice, leather and fruity marc notes. The mouthfeel is warming and creamy. Slightly sweetish, the liquorice and leather appear very pleasant again. A flowery grape aroma accompanies the long finish.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Grape varieties

Nebbiolo

Proud Piedmontese

It’s the king of Piedmont: the most sought-after wines come from Nebbiolo. It reaches its highest expression in Barolo and Barbaresco. Its acidic, tannin-rich wines in its youth are often unapproachable. With maturity, however, it develops an ethereal bouquet of cherry, liquorice, violet and rose, as well as truffles, tar and forest floor. Nebbiolo takes its name from the Italian “Nebbia”, meaning fog. This not because of the weather in Piedmont, but due to the whitish film on the ripe, red berries. It was first mentioned by this name in the 13th century. Much like the Pinot noir, Nebbiolo can precisely reflect its terroir, but only if it is really pleased with where it is. It likes cool climates and calcareous soils. Attempts have been made to transplant it, for example, to California, but the results were disappointing. It feels most comfortable in the hills of northern Italy.
