Italian Single Malt Red, 40%

Price: $47.00 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

It might be Italian single malt, but it isn't whisky. It's getting there, though, and this is very sippable in its own right. This is from the far North of Italy, where the influence is heavily Austrian. It's very well made indeed, is bursting with vibrant fruit, and is good enough now to be enjoyed as an aperitif. It will appeal to Italian palates, which are fond of very young spirits. €35
