Product Description

Pallini Raspicello is a rare delight. It has a ruby, jewel-toned appearance and a silky, lightweight body. The aroma of wild vine-ripened raspberries is glorious. The bouquet more than sets the stage for what is to follow. The Raspicello's initial attach is somewhat demure yet remarkably smooth. As the liqueur washes over the palate, the fresh fruit flavors begin to grow in intensity, with the raspberry character attracting all of the early reviews. There are notes of other soft berries in the palate that are subtle, yet discernible for those who care to notice. The melange of delectable flavors lingers on the palate for an impressively long time. Raspicello is an exquisite, skillfully balanced liqueur.

Varietal: Cordials/Liqueurs

Region: Italy

Region Description:

Makes nearly as much wine as France, but lags behind in their classification system. As a result, Italian wine isn’t taken as seriously as French wine. Most Italian wine is made from native grape varieties that don’t grow well elsewhere, such as Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. The most important regions are Piedmont, where Barolo and Barbaresco dominate, Tuscany, home to Chianti, Montepulciano, and the Super-Tuscans (a collection of relatively new reds), and the Northeastern region, where you’ll find Soave, Valpolicella, and Bardolino. Italy’s soils and climates are varied and ideally suited for viticulture, from the Alpine foothills in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the South. Its hilly landscape provides sun and cooler temperatures, even in the warmest regions. Italy has two categories of fine wines. DOCG, which means regulated and guaranteed place name, refers to a small group of elite wines. DOB wines are those with regulated (but not guaranteed) place names. A lower tier of table wines are grouped into IGT wines, which indicate the location on the label, and ordinary table wines, which carry no geographical indication except, “Italy.”
