Description

History

Giglio Grappa di Chianti Riserva 70 cl bottle is a grappa produced by the Il Giglio company in Lastra a Signa, at the beginning of Chianti, founded in 1973. Today it has been owned since 1985 by the Cicali family of Sparla & Gerardi, who will also create the today’s Il Giglio brand in honor of its proximity to the splendid Florence.

Grapes used

Tuscan Trebbiano

White Malvasia

Production method

The grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hand and left to dry on mats in rooms called vinsantaie. The must obtained is then placed in kegs where a natural and slow alcoholic fermentation begins; the product will stay in the barrel for at least 3 years or more depending on the vintage.

Alcoholic content

15,5%

Tasting notes

At sight it has a deep and bright amber color. On the nose peach and apricot jam, honey, vanilla and other sweet spices. In the mouth it is viscous, soft and with a good structure, with a pleasant acidity and length on the finish.

Possible combinations

Vin Santo del Giglio is indicated as a meditation wine at the end of a meal, traditionally combined with the classic Tuscan cantucci. If you want to try a pairing, we highly recommend it with apricot or peach tarts, fig desserts or cream desserts.
