Alexander Platinum Grappa

Alexander Platinum Grappa 750ml     
Sku: 2316

A vintage-dated grappa made from pomace arising out of the production of Amarone and its dessert wine counterpart, Recioto di Amarone, the two legendary red wines of Italy’s Veneto region. Use of the sweet Recioto pomace lends a particularly distinctive quality to Alexander Platinum, which retains a hint of the intensely flavorful grapes left to dry on the vines until the fall.

Wine maker notes
Amarone and its dessert wine counterpart, Recioto di Amarone, are both made from a classic blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes; all three varieties are native to the Veneto region. Alexander Platinum is made from the pomace of these two majestic red wines. After a double-distillation in copper steam alembic stills, a period of refinement ensues, with the resulting grappa left to rest for a couple of months in stainless steel vats, before being bottled and released.
