Special Reserve Aged Grappa
This grappa is obtained from the distillation of a selected blend of fermented red and white grape pomaces originating from small Venetian wineries. The pomace are selected and bought in sealed bags, so to fully preserve its characteristics.
Traditional method distillery
FRATELLI BRUNELLO’s distillery, has used since the beginning a few discontinuous stills that are still in operation. It provides low-pressure direct steam at low temperatures. It consists of 4 copper heating boilers, just like the traditional system. The distillation cycle is very slow and involves the processing of small batches of pomace. Each distillation cycle lasts one hour to one hour and a half.
Maturation and aging
The Grappa is stored in inert stainless steel tanks for at least 12 months to improve its smoothness. It is then transferred to our sealed warehouse, where it ages inside 350-liter Allier oak new or second hand barrels for over 3 years. It is during this time that the alchemy of the slow and gradual transfer of color, wood aromas and toasting takes place on the Grappa.
With an intense straw yellow color that varies depending on the batch, Grappa La Scura Riserva yields bold aromas, in a perfect balance of taste and smell, with a soft vanilla finish. Hints of spices, such as coriander and cinnamon, with notes of licorice, chestnut honey and tobacco are perceived. Light and pleasant sensation of hay and wet leather.
Serving and pairing
It should be served between 15° and 18° C in a small tulip-shaped glass. It expresses all its characteristics of elegance and fragrance when paired with hard cheese aged over 18 months, 75% chocolate or handmade cigars.
