Grappa made mixed pomace and refined 12 months in barrique. Roner's refined Grappa Gold is distilled a delicate composition of first-class Gewürztraminer, Vernatsch and Pinot Noir grape pomace. It is aged in oak barrels to make this grappa unique and round off the authentic flavour of South Tyrolean grappa.
Made with an ancient recipe, kept strictly secret. Many different kinds of herbs are manufactured and mixed together. It is the mix of all these herbs' properties that assures the stimulating effect of this bitter. It is not a slightly bitter liqueur, but a proper bitter with a full and dry taste, genuine and without any added sugar. The ancient monastery recipe rightly called it " The long life elixir".
Even the ancient Romans appreciated the qualities of juniper. With the frequent use of juniper berries in the kitchens of various regions in the Alps, enjoying this juniper distillate is now a much loved tradition.
The Südtiroler Edelvernatsch, also known as Schiava, is a light-bodied wine, whose color is light ruby to deep ruby red. It is pleasant and fruity on the palate, often with a touch of bitter almonds.
