Judges Tasting Notes (International Wine & Spirits Competition):
Light gold with most inviting floral nose. Delicate hints of jasmine, citrus and tea leaves. Smooth and rich in the mouth with velvet texture yet lively with it. Delightfully mellow. Flavours of prune and dried hay join to add extra complexity. Long lasting sipper to be savoured.
Through the staves of the wooden barres there is a continuous osmotic transfer of oxygen between the air and the distilled liquid: you can almost say that the grappa is breathing. This results in a certain loss of quantity but all of the sharp qualities are softended. The tannins of the high quality wood combine and blend with the aromas of the grappa giving it a new tone which is persuasive and distinct. Tasting Results ( R. Padoan, tasting judge, National Association of Grappa Tasters ) Visible characteristics: The color is straw-yellow and crystal clear. Fragrance: The dominant scent is a mix of fruit ( apples, pears, tropical with a clear hint of citrus ) and white flowers. There are also noticeable aromas of fresh grass, aromatic herbs ( especially sage ), a touch of blond tobacco, juniper and vanilla. Taste: It has good harmony with notes of sweetness carefully blended to give a sense of softness on the tongue. The finish or aftertaste: As the initial sensations fade, one can taste the woodlands, with a touch of honey and anice. The lingering finish is a sign of excellence. Conclusions: We find here a grappa of excellent quality, of class, almost for connoisseurs I would say because it does not overwhelm the senses neither visibly ( with a strong color ) nor the sense of smell but it is correctly dominated by elegance; its delicateness is its strong point. The result is a grappa which is smooth and decisive at the same time with a perfect blend of all the characteristics: visible, olfactory, taste and finish.
De Negri Cartizze Grappa is the result of a careful selection of Cartizze grapes from the Pre-Alpine hills in the Prosecco area, where ideal exposure and constant ventilation allow the growth of perfectly sound grapes full of flavour.
