In South Tyrol caraway (carum carvi) is largely used to spice bread, pies, cheese and cabbage and is very appreciated due to its aromatic and digestive properties. This grappa is obtained the infusion of caraway seeds in fresh grappa for about 30 days. Strong and spicy flavour.
The stone pine is a tree that usually grows on an altitude of 1800 m and is appreciated for its digestive and soothing properties. The cones are left to infuse cold in fresh grappa with stone pine cones that will confer the traditional red colour. Spicy and unique flavour.
The Schiava grape is a varietal specific to South Tyrol and has a subtle and delicate aroma. With its reserved character, the Schiava is able to highlight every delicious dish. The Gschleier vineyards distinguish themselves by vineyards that are now more than 100 years old.
