Italian brandy, better than cognac?
What is Italian brandy? Is Italian brandy as good as French cognac? What are the main manufacturers? How does it taste? Let's take a closer look at Brandy., which is called that because Cognac has settled on that name and regional brand, just as Champagne is also protected. Brandy is a distilled spirit made from grapes, similar to French cognac. However, there are some differences in the production process and the specific grapes used. Italian brandy is typically made from a blend of different grape varieties, including Trebbiano, Sangiovese and Malvasia. These grapes are grown primarily in the northern regions of Italy, such as Veneto, Piedmont and Emilia-Romagna. The production process for Italian brandy is similar to that of cognac, where the grapes are fermented and then distilled twice in copper stills. The resulting spirit is then aged in oak casks for a minimum of two years before being bottled and sold. In terms of quality, brandy can be as good as French cognac, with some producers creating exceptional spirits that are highly sought after by connoisseurs.
