What is Grappa?

Grappa is a grape brandy made from grapes produced and vinified exclusively in Italy, distilled in Italy.

There are three main types of marc with which to distil grappa:

1) Fermented pomace obtained by racking red wines.
2) Semi-virgin pomace, obtained in the vinification in rosé;
the same result is obtained from the pomace of sweet wines;
3) Virgin pomace, obtained by draining in white vinification to obtain white wines. In this case, the pomace did not undergo any significant fermentation.

Virgin or semi-virgin marc must be fermented before starting the distillation since grappa is obtained only from fermented marc.
High-quality grappas require that the seeds are separated before distillation.
The name derives from the term "grapa" with which the stem is called in Lombardy.

What does Grappa Barricata means?

When next to grappa there's the word "Barricato", it means that the Grappa has been aged in oak barrels which are called "barriques".
