Grappa of Gavi
In order to make this our “Gavi dei Gavi”™ grappa, we collect marc into proper containers, to protect its freshness. Aftwerwards it’s placed into 4 meters deep tubs and it ferments at 18° – 20° temperature. Using stills there is the first production, subsequently distilled at water-bath and indirect steam with pressure less than 1 atmosphere. This way of production allows the distillate separation at a temperature of less than 95°, in order to protect flavours and marc delicacy. The concentration into column starts with a low number of plates for a minimum splitting and an optimum flavor leaching.
3 month of refining into used barrels (used for prestigious wine aging) give to the initial marc’s flavours a great enhancement. Using this detailed procedure this distillate takes elegant and well balanced notes without oak flavours’ overlaps.
