Grappa Sibona Reserve in Madeira Barrels Cl 50
This special Grappa Riserva di Moscato already matured, for a long period (over 2 years), in oak wood, was later elevated over 24 months in barrels from the island of Madeira, to elevate the “Madeira” of the most prestigious wineries.
The special sojourn in Madeira barrels, already used in Whiskies, has been innovatively experimented by us on Grappa and with exceptional results from a quality point of view.
The engaging, fruity aroma and the rich, refined flavor with floral aftertaste are very reminiscent of that of Madeira already contained in these barrels.
