  • Introduction

    • Grappa is made from the pomace of Nebbiolo grapes from the Sperss vineyard in the commune of Serralunga.

  • Vinification

    • Right after the fermentation, the fresh pomace is immediately distilled in a stainless steel alembic. Distillation happens at lower alcohol content and slowly in order to conserve all of the varietal characteristics and aromas. The pomace is warmed-up with increasing temperatures and the alcohol vapors from the pomace is funneled into a distillation column with slow and cautious fractioning of the first and the last exhalations (the “heads” and the “tails”) in order to keep only the more delicate “heart”. At the start of this process, the grappa has an alcohol content of 70-75%. Before bottling, distilled water is added to bring the grappa to the alcohol level indicated on the label.
