About the wine
The most authoritative alchemist – of Grappa, or “bottled grape sun” as Paolo Monelli calls it, was Francesco Trussoni, alembic master from Gallo d’ Alba. He had the genial idea of created Grappa di Barolo, the first single grape Grappa in history, in 1885.
The company was taken over by Mario Montanaro and his wife Angela Trussoni in 1922. With their son, Giuseppe Montanaro, they perfected the production processes by adopting steam alembics and inherited a rigorous method that made use of the precious experience and the influence of the Alba Wine School.
Over a century, this brought about a sort of irreplaceable “ecosystem” where Montanaro spirits, particularly Grappa di Barolo, have become the most sophisticated emblems of the values related to a happy territory called Langa, encompassing a variety of historical and cultural aspects.
After several trials in order to bring back an old recipe found in the archives of the historic distillery, the “Bianco Montanaro,” a combination of a fine white wine infused with more than 30 natural herbs and roots, was born. Part of the secret of making their “Bianco” is to encode the right number of herbs to extract the properties and aromas of each one of them, revealing a harmonious scent that is also soft on the palate and not invasive. The “Bianco Montanaro” is ideal as an aperitif, to be served chill or with ice, can also be a perfect base of cocktails. Possible pairing with matured cheese.
This golden vermouth offers bright tropical and orchard fruit aromas, which are echoed on the sweet-tart, citrusy palate. The finish is appropriately bitter. ~91 Wine Enthusiast "Top 100 Spirits of 2018"
