Exceptional Grappa Riserva obtained by distilling marc from grapes suitable for producing Barolo. After spending some time in steel tanks, it rests for over eight years in oak barrels and barriques. During this long period of ageing, it becomes smooth and complex, with unique and elegant scents. Fantastic meditation grappa.
