Created from pomace of Nebbiolo from Barolo. Its color is rich amber, from aging for a minimum of four years in small barrels. Amply perfumed, with deep and vivid flavors of toasty vanilla. Warmly full-bodied; generous in character.
|Maestro Grappaiolo Paolo Marolo creates this special blend from grappas distilled from selected fresh Nebbiolo grape pomace of
the incomparable wine of Barolo. Aging the grappas 36 to 42 months in wood before blending (30% in 600-liter acacia barrels and
70% in 228-liter oak barriques) imparts a lovely straw color, a deeply ample aroma, and enormous full-flavored character balanced
by velvety smoothness.
|1977, Paolo Marolo's first grappas were produced from the desire to transform a traditional,
often rustic product into an example of the distiller's art. Since that time he has consistently
worked with the pomaces of noble grape varieties from the renowned wine regions of Italy.
Marolo's Santa Teresa distillery works closely with wineries in various regions to ensure that
only the freshest pomace is used. Two small discontinuous "bain marie" stills are employed,
one for white wine pomace and the other for the red wine pomace. This method of production
means that Santa Teresa cannot distill large quantities of spirits, but it allows Marolo to
capture the diverse and well-defined characteristics of the excellent raw materials he uses.
