"Marolo Grappa di Barolo is a fittingly robust expression of the Nebbiolo grape. This is a bold, rich grappa, with notes of vanilla, baking spices, almond, and oak. Its time in barrel doesn't do too much to mute the spirit; it's still aromatic and lively. Analogized to whiskey, this would be a young and spicy rye. "
