This grappa is based on an old family recipe, used by Signora Lodovina, and perfected by her grandson, Paolo Marolo. It clearly exudes the fresh aroma of chamomile tea with honeyed sweetness. The recipe is both very simple and very difficult, because it takes a master to balance the ingredients of this unique liqueur, the ORIGINAL chamomile liqueur. It is based on grappa from Nebbiolo grapes in which the chamomile flowers are left to macerate for 11 months, with the addition of sugar.
|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.
