Prime Uve Nere (Acquavite d’Uva)
This exquisite aqua vitae results from the distillation of such fine red grapes as Cabernet and Refosco, aged in small wood barrels. The unique procedure chosen by Bonaventura Maschio makes this product outstandingly rounded and aromatic.
Quality control starts in the vineyard: finest terrain and exposures, densely planted vines yielding small, highly concentrated crops, green harvest in July, severely selected fruit, hand-picked at the ideal maturation point.
Made by fermenting whole grapes ( as opposed to grappa which is distilled from marc), whose distinctive flavors are captured and enhanced by state-of-the-art distillation at low temperatures. Maschio aqua vitae starts off as a potential fine wine, and becomes a great distillate.
