MAROLO ACQUAVITE APRICOTMarolo Distillery
Grape: Not a grape, made with apricots
Paolo Marolo has been distilling grappa for more than 35 years, using his own hands to craft spirit of the highest quality. Paolo’s friendly nature is infectious, and his love of his work as ‘maestro grappaiolo’ is as unquestionable as the class of his product. Perhaps it is this character that means names such as Conterno, Revello, Vajra, Oddero, Sandrone, Elio Altare and others deal exclusively with Paolo, supplying him with the freshest and highest quality marc from which he crafts his remarkable spirits. This, the depth of the range and the evocative packaging are likely to create a cult following.
Marolo's Acquavite are whole fruits, distilled in much the same way as grappa. Because the whole fruit is used, this results in a softer spirit although it is much the same in alcohol content. Here are unmistakeable aromas of full, ripe apricots which follows through on the soft dry palate. As with all Marolo grappa, this is finished with a delicate tingle of acid.
