discontinuous with 4 copper boilers and steam
Distilled beverages traditionally encapsulate our love and respect for the fruits of the earth. The Grappa di Gradoni is distilled purely from pomace deriving from the grapes grown on the terraces on the hillside overlooking the winery. The pomace is distilled while still fresh, using the traditional discontinuous method with copper boilers. This intense, mellow spirit provides the perfect ending to any meal.
PLANT AND AGING
Discontinuous with 4 copper boilers and steam. In small oak barrels for 24 months.
It is obtained by distilling the solid part of grapes (pomace): Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Discontinuous distillation is carried out in small steam-powered cauldrons with the ‘heads and tails’ being separated off. Sensuous and intense, fine and elegant with notes of withered flowers, honey, red fruit jam and fine spices. Smooth, enveloping and harmonious with clear-cut hints of vanilla, liquorice, cocoa and a closing note of sweet tobacco. Very lingering, rich, complex and well-balanced.
