Andrea Da Ponte | Fine Italian Grappa
Fine Italian Grappa is a traditional young grappa which reflects the unique characteristics of the Merlot and Cabernet vines which grow on the hills of the Veneto. Bright and crystal clear, its nose is rich in balsamic notes, spicy tones and hints of the delicious fruits of the forest floor. The fruit of a careful selection of the best, fermented red-grape pomace, it is distilled in a special continuous pot still to obtain a pure grappa with a very traditional flavour. Its palate is dry, strong, assertive.
Fine Italian Grappa
Pomace selected from the Glera vine from which the Prosecco Superiore DOCG Conegliano Valdobbiadene is born and where Prosecco is Superiore.
In 1896 Matteo Da Ponte published “Il manuale della distillazione”, the book which contains illustrations, for the first time, of the alembics he patented and the first columns for concentration of the alcoholic vapours, built to age and soften a genuine spirit yet with a rough and unsophisticated taste. The “Metodo Da Ponte” has the advantage of collecting and preserving in the distillate the most intense varietal aromas of the grape, the more delicate and volatile ones, to reintroduce them, very fresh, in every drop to be tasted. It is almost a revelation, an example which the heads of the family, in the years to come, follow scrupulously, won over by the art of distillation.
