This is the grappa I was served in Librizzi's in Edinburgh on Friday night. Have you ever seen such a dark grappa? It was almost like a malt whisky in colour. The owner explained that it was a Francoli grappa that had been matured in oak for 18 months and that's what gave it such a dark colour.
Although it didn't look like a grappa I'm pleased to say that it certainly smelled and tasted like a grappa.
As did the second one I had just to make sure.
