Characteristics and production process
We chose the best Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes and let them wither in dry rooms, on traditional wooden racks. Here the grapes gradually lose until 40-50% of their weight. At the end of the winter the withered grapes are gently pressed, in order to obtain soft and juicy marcs. This excellent raw material is steam distilled in small copper alembics which preserve its organoleptic characteristics. The whole process ends with a wise ageing in barrique, that lasts 18 months.
Recommended glass: Tardiva glass
Serving temperature: 14° C
Aged Grappa can help digestion, so it is perfect after meals. It is a distillate "for thoughts and meditation". It is an ingredient for cocktails and long drinks. It can accompany the tasting of dark chocolate. It is traditionally used to correct espresso coffee and, in Veneto and Friuli, to dilute the last drops of coffee, remaining on the bottom of the cup (Resentin).
