Warm and inviting with fresh, floral notes, the honeyed and slightly minty flavors of chamomile are evident but balanced in the long and lingering finish.
Founded in 1977 in Alba, Italy, proprietor and head distiller Paolo Marolo creates his eponymous grappas by following two simple rules: source superior, single varietal pomace and press it as soon as possible.
Freshness is so essential to Paolo that he keeps his discontinuous ”Bain Marie copper stills running around the clock during the harvest season. The discontinuous distillation method is traditional to the area and one favored by small producers because it allows them to manually control the pace and evolution of the distillation.
Over the years, Paolo has successfully developed key relationships with wineries throughout Italy to secure the finest pomace for Grappa Marolo. His attention to detail has become legendary and as such he is considered a Master Grappaioli.
