The Grappas

Grappa 8 Years - Aged in Barriques

Made with

pomace of Nebbiolo grapes used to make Barolo and Barbaresco and Moscato d’Asti grapes.

Tasting

medium intense amber in color. Beautifully harmonious scents of honey, marron glacés and chamomile on the nose. Full-bodied, enveloping, lingering flavor with notes of cinnamon, cloves and pine resin.

Alcohol content

45% by vol.

Distilling

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.

Ageing

In 225-litre Allier, Troncais and Limousin oak for a period of at least eight 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.
