GRAPPA CILIEN 1888
CONTEST WINNER OF NINETEEN ALEMBIC OF GARDA 2014
Category: Old Grappa
Cilien was born, a man of forbidden charm, that after the First World War becomes a true pioneer in the clandestine art of that time, the distillation.
The most imaginative tales of his life are still alive in defiance of the gendarmerie.
This grappa has been aged for over two years in wooden barrels. It has a brilliant golden yellow color; the bouquet of perfumes and aromas at the nose are the one of a typical fragrant brandy combined with resinous notes.
The palate is clean, leaving a soft and fragrant aftertaste, that’s also sweet and persistent.
