Grappa Moscato Alexander has its origin in the skins of moscato grapes, aromatic vine par excellence, with gold-yellow grapes used to obtain the renowned Moscato wine. 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 notes. Before bottling, this Grappa is aged in steel tanks for nearly 6 months, with positive outcomes on its aromatic profile and softness.
