Grappa is an acquavit produced from "marc" (the marc is what remains of a grape, eliminating only the pulp) obtained from grapes produced and vinified exclusively in Italy and must be distilled only on the national territory. The production of Grappa, the most Italian of distillate, is very delicate.
In other European countries and NOT, where is produced this distilled marc, it can NOT be called GRAPPA (this name can only be used in Italy) but it takes several names.
By law, in Italy, the alcohol content on the distillate must not be less than 37.5% by volume, while there is no fixed maximum. The classification is based on the refinement and / or processes that follow the distillation and therefore a grappa can be defined in 5 ways: YOUNG - AROMATIC - AGED - AGED RESERVE or STRAVECCHIA - BARRICATA.
In our area we have one of the most important Distilleries in the world but, also many wineries, produce exceptional Grappa. We could combine a tasting of Grappa, directly together with a wine tour. You will not regret it.
