Grappa San Pietro is a distilled wine with an extremely interesting personality and character, sometimes almost arrogant, with elegance and richness in flavour.
Raw material: fine selected marcs of Cortese grapes.
Fermentation: under vacuum in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. This process is immediately followed by distilling so as to avoid damaging secondary fermentation.
Distillation: occurs through hand-crafted steam pot stills, adhering to ancient tradition.
The distillation process is very slow, in order to let the volatile components responsible for the perfume have an adequate period of evaporation and subsequent condensation to keep intact the organoleptic characteristics of the grapes.
Alcohol content: 43%.
Ageing: from six to eight months in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting: perfect when served at about 12°C in a large tulip-shaped glass. Before the tasting, it is advisable to let the Grappa San Pietro rest for a few minutes in the glass to oxygenate it. In this way, the aromas are released for a perfect nose/palate harmony.
To the nose is soft and slightly aromatic, floral, with a hint of sweetness. In the mouth it is persistent and has a great personality.
