Discontinuous method with direct fire and submerged pomace with a still completely made of copper. Thanks to the long distillation and the low temperatures of the process, this is the most ancient and sole method to grant a perfect separation of the heads and the tails from the heart of the distilled drink, thus obtaining a grappa according to our tradition. The skilful distiller carries out a very low and difficult process with selected raw materials and obtains a unique distilled drink able to keep the aromas of the grape of origin. Our Grappa is aged in fine wood for at least 12 months.
Amber Grappa with scents of raisin, fig and dehydrated apricot to the nose, which, with the passing of time, change into tobacco and leather scents. In the mouth, it is elegant yet with a structure and an aftertaste return of perfect harmony.
Pastry, dark chocolate (at least 70% also chili pepper chocolate), dried fruit.
