Exquisite Grappa Invecchiata Langhe
Aged Langhe Grappa
Grappa Exquisite Invecchiata Langhe is produced with pomace from autochthonous grapes, like Nebbiolo and Barbera. These varieties are used in the production of Langhe wines: complex, elegant, long-living products, with great body and structure like Barolo and Barbaresco, synonyms with winemaking excellence. Grappa is produced during three distillation phases with different temperature. The process takes place in traditional copper alembics, which allow for under vacuum distillation (greater protection of aromas), with bain-marie heating (indirect and therefore more delicate system), thus preserving the aromatic fullness and fragrance of originary grapes. Grappa is then aged for 12 months in oak barrels produced with traditional techniques: freshly cut wood is left to dry in open air for at least 24 months, thus losing water and most astringent tannins. Staves are cut and assembled before undergoing an intense toasting. During aging in these barrels, chemical and physical reactions enhance the complexity of the bouquet, giving grappa a softer taste and a typical amber color.

Color and Appearance
Elegant and complex, it conveys fruity and spicy aromas with delicate hints of licorice and a special toasted note in its finish.
Full and strong, thanks to its aging in wood it caresses the palate with a soft tannicity and leaves a sharp and persistent hint of raisin on the palate. Ample and long aftertaste.
Aged grappa is perfect after meals, as a meditation distillate, and is also an ingredient in cocktails and long drinks. It is a perfect match with dark chocolate, with cocoa-based cakes and with pastries, particularly with almond, nut or pistachio biscuits.
