Quality and care for the raw materials are the first and most important steps in the production of a good grappa. For this reason, healthy, fresh and vinous pomace of the vines harvested in dedicated areas are stored with care to preserve all their quality. Grappa Amarone Alexander has its origin in the skins of the pomace obtained by pressing the dried grapes used to produce Valpolicella’s most renowned wine, Amarone. Over the years, this excellent wine has conquered the most refined palates worldwide thanks to its unique and unmistakable personality. Grappa is produced during three distillation phases with different temperature. The process takes place in traditional copper alembics, which allow for under vacuum distillation (greater protection of aromas), with bain-marie heating (indirect and therefore more delicate system). The result is a Grappa which expresses all the aromaticity of its originary vine, with distinctive spicy notes. Before bottling, this Grappa is aged in steel tanks for nearly 6 months, with positive outcomes on its aromatic profile and softness.

Grappa is perfect after meals, particularly when based on savory meat or cheese courses. It can be enjoyed cold or even chilled, and is an ingredient in cocktails and long drinks. Grappa Amarone Alexander is a perfect match with dark chocolate, chocolate cakes, pasty, ice creams or fruit salads. It is traditionally used to correct espresso coffee and, in Veneto and Friuli, to dilute the last drops of coffee remaining on the bottom of the cup (Resentin): the invigorating effect of coffee, combined with the relaxing action of alcohol, gives a pleasant sensation of well-being and energy.
