Italy's Elixir

SKILFULLY ASSEMBLED from the choice remnants of Nebbiolo, Barbaresco and Moscato d'Asti (before Caudalie had a chance to turn these into skin cream), here is a bitter honey, lemon verbena and chamomile scented cask aged grappa. Far from paint stipper - more like particularly perfumed Armagnac.
