The “Lazarito Bocchino” pot still method. This grappa is distilled at an alcohol proof of 75%, after removing “heads and tails” (first batch and final residues), using copper columns with mushroom-shaped plates.
In 225-litre Allier, Troncais and Limousin oak for a period of at least twelve years, during which the alcohol content is progressively lowered to 45% by vol. A year before bottling, the spirit is poured off from the barriques into a large oak cask to allow the grappas to blend slowly. Cantina Privata is only bottled in the best years in a blend of 65% grappa made with Nebbiolo for Barolo and Barbaresco and 35% Moscato d’Asti grappa.
