Tasting Notes: A Journey for the Senses

  • Aroma: Upon pouring, the Bepi Tosolini Grappa di Merlot greets the nose with a bouquet of delicate and well-expressed fruity aromas. The most prominent note is that of ripe prune, hinting at the grappa's depth and character. Hints of other red fruits, like raspberry, may also be present, adding a touch of complexity.
  • Palate: The initial sip delivers a crisp and clean flavour profile. The influence of the Merlot grape shines through, with subtle hints of woodiness complementing the fruity notes. The grappa is wonderfully dry, lacking excessive sweetness, and finishes with an elegant aftertaste that lingers pleasantly on the palate.
  • Alcohol: Bepi Tosolini Grappa di Merlot is bottled at 40% ABV (alcohol by volume), offering a satisfying yet balanced drinking experience. The alcohol integrates well with the grappa's flavours, providing a gentle warmth without overwhelming the senses.
