Grappa made from the pomace of Nebbiolo grapes.
Alcohol content: 42°
Characteristics: Delicate amber colour. Characteristics: as balsamic notes and hints of resin,
bergamot, and pressed roses. Good structure and balance, warm, spicy finish.
Right after the fermentation Distillation process: , the fresh pomace is immediately distilled
in a stainless steel alembic. Distillation happens at lower alcohol content and slowly in
order to conserve all of the varietal characteristic and aromas. The pomace is warmed-
up with increasing temperatures and the alcohol vapours from the pomace is funnelled
into a distillation column with slow and cautious fractioning of the first and the last
exhalations (the "heads” and the “tails”) in order to keep only the more delicate “heart”.
At the end of this process, the grappa has an alcohol content of 70-75°. The grappa is
then refined in small barrels made of four different types of wood: acacia, juniper, oak
and birch. After one year in wood, distilled water is added to bring the grappa to the
alcohol level indicated on the label.
