The apricots we grow in our orchards of Alba, are collected at the right point of ripeness and processed within few hours.
Within 24 hours of collection they are worked by adding natural syrup made from a delicate Moscato Grappa which is obtained by a slow distillation of pomace likely to become Moscato d’Asti. The result is a product preserved with the same characteristics associated with freshness but with unique organoleptic properties and the particular flavor of grappa flavored apricot and enhances.
They are great to taste “natural” simply opening the jar, or to make delicious desserts, and ice cream.
The syrup is good to drink! … in moderation …
