"Clear Creek's Nebbiolo Grappa is one of the more approachable takes on the category. With invitingly fruit-forward aromas, its more assertive side comes through on the first sip. There its earthier, greener notes take center stage, balanced by a soft mouthfeel that gradually warms to a long finish."
