Quality and care for the raw materials are the first and most important steps in the production of a good grappa. For this reason, healthy, fresh and vinous pomace of the vines harvested in dedicated areas are stored with care to preserve all their quality. Grappa Platinum has its origin in the skins of the pomace obtained by pressing the dried grapes used to produce Valpolicella’s most renowned wine, Amarone. Over the years, this excellent wine has conquered the most refined palates worldwide thanks to its unique and unmistakable personality. 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). The result is a Grappa which expresses all the aromaticity of its originary vine, with distinctive spicy notes. With an alcohol content of 48%, this grappa meets the taste of purists who love strong, more alcoholic distillates inspired by classic tradition. Before bottling, this Grappa is aged in steel tanks for nearly 6 months, with positive outcomes on its aromatic profile and softness.
