The nose is filled with chocolate, coffee, spices and mature red fruit. The palate has considerable power and grip while maintaining elegance. Calabrone will surely benefit from additional cellar time, at least 5 years.
Calabrone Grappa is distilled from the skins of Bastianich Calabrone –Pignolo, Refosco passito, Cabernet Franc passito, Merlot and CabernetSauvignon.
With dry extract levels near or greater to those of most Amarone, this is a big red wine for robust dishes.
