Grappa Chardonnay Alexander has its origin in the skins of chardonnay yellow grapes, a vine originary of Burgundy which subsequently spread and became an essential component in the production of fine sparkling wines. 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 floral and fruity 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. This aromatic Grappa Chardonnay Alexander is a perfect match with white chocolate, shortbread cakes, dried fruit, 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.
