Paolo Marolo is widely regarded as one of the best grappa producers in the world. He is credited for being a leading innovator in Alba, the heartland of grappa production, for departing from the tradition of working with a continuous still (used for efficiency in mass production), and choosing instead to work with a bain-marie discontinuous still. This alembic requires fresh pomace and distills very small quantities much more slowly, but ultimately yields a grappa that is infinitely more pure, complex, and invigorating, with many dimensions of aromas and flavor. This grappa, from 100% Barolo vernaccia, is aged four years in oak barrel, which gives it more viscosity and a richer, softer profile. The entry is slightly sweet and the flavors are similar to a fine Cognac or Armagnac. This is one of the better grappas we've ever tasted and we are excited to have it available.
