Product Notes

For the Grappa Stravecchia, the skins are carefully selected and similarly distilled by master distiller Bruno Franceschini according to the traditional method. The high-quality distillate is striking for its unique character and shimmering golden amber colour.


It is the result of long ageing in the oak barriques previously used to age the San Leonardo – the wine that is the symbol and quintessence of the estate.

SPIRIT TYPE

Aged pomace brandy.

RAW MATERIAL

Fermented grape pomace.

SOURCE

Tenuta San Leonardo.

GRAPE RIPENING PERIOD

September-October.

DISTILLATION PERIOD

October-November.

STILL TYPE

Pot stills working in a discontinuous cycle.

DISTILLATION PROCEDURE

Steam heating. To make a good grappa, the pomace must be completely fermented and distilled as soon as the wine has been racked off, after only light pressing. The average alcohol content of the distillate obtained is 75% vol. and before bottling, it is diluted with distilled water to the desired alcohol content. It is then cooled to a temperature of 10 °C and filtered 48 hours later.

BOTTLE AGEING

For about five years in small oak barrels (barriques), in which the estate's flagship wine has previously matured: San Leonardo.

COMPONENTS

Water and ethyl alcohol. Hundreds of secondary components are also present in minute quantities. It is these superior alcohols, esters, aldehydes, oils and so on that contribute to the sensory characteristics of the distillate.

ALCOHOL CONTENT

45% vol.

SENSORY ANALYSIS

Grappa Stravecchia has a characteristic amber-gold appearance. Full-bodied, aromatic and subtly elegant; a seriously good spirit with a unique sensory profile, it is distilled in limited, prestige-enhancing quantities to be savoured in reflective mood.

SERVING TENPERATURE

16-18 °C. Serve in large glasses to appreciate the aromas to the full.
