Andrea Da Ponte | La Venexiana
Available on backorder
La Venexiana is a young grappa which reflects the uniqueness of the renowned, high-quality Valdobbiadene area and the vines typical of the zone. Extremely clear and bright, La Venexiana has a singularly elegant, delicate bouquet. The fruit of a careful selection of the best Prosecco di Cartizze pomace, it is double-distilled in batches in a traditional discontinuous pot still. Its palate is soft, fresh and subtly fruity.
PURE DISTILLED SPIRIT OF AROMATIC GRAPES
The first sip of La Venexian
a already reveals its exciting character, while its long-lingering, tasty finish completes its perfect progression in the mouth. Thanks to the single-batch bain-marie pot-still method exclusive to Da Ponte, the aromatic essences emerge unusually clean and sharply-delineated. 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.
