Ortica Mentichina


Mint Nettle is found in Trentino over 1,300m and is probably named after its tendency to thrive alongside highly aromatic mint plants.
The climate and altitude augment the noted characteristics of this special nettle. The formula for its use in grappa was rediscovered documented in archives dating from the 1500s.

In winter traditionally, unbeatable for massages of the joints and chest.

Before tasting in the tulip glass, the grappa must be allowed to breathe in the glass for a couple of minutes so that the aromas and the perfect balance between flavours and aromas can be appreciated to the full.

Recommended use; as an aperitif, in espresso coffees, as digestif or at any time during the day. Perfect for enjoying a relaxing moment or meditation, maybe accompanied by a good cigar.
For new and rare sensations try it with dark chocolate, fresh or mature cheese, dried fruit, honey, directly in fruit salad, dessert, on ice cream. 
In the kitchen, perfect in ragu’, excellent for roast lamb, pork or grilled meats, ideal also for marinating grilled fish like prawns
