Poderi Colla Bonme Vino Aromatizzato

NV

In a Nutshell

In the Piemontese dialect, Bonme means absinthe. This is Poderi Colla's own version of the infamous drink!

Tasting Notes

An ancient absinthe recipe, but tastes more like Vermouth, initially used for the Colla family’s private consumption, but now by popular demand, available in limited quantities in the UK. A delicate mixture of intense, old-vine Moscato grapes fortified pre-fermentation to 15% abv, to retain the grapes natural sweetness. Then a secret blend of infused rinds, roots, pips and flowers are integrated a few months before bottling. This produces a delicious combination of fresh grapey Moscato fruit with a woody, herbal complexity.

Production Notes

The Moscato grapes are pressed immediately after harvest and a quantity of pure alcohol is added to the must in order to delay fermentation. Therefore, it is the natural sugar content of the grapes that sweetens Bonme, maintaining the extraordinary aromatic character of the variety. The herbal components (rinds, pips, roots and flowers) are separately infused into alcohol for one/two weeks after which several extracts are obtained and tested in various combinations until the winemakers are happy that the correct dosage and balance have been obtained. The end product of this painstaking process is left to settle so the flavours can marry for a few months before bottling.
