Grappa aged in terracotta

Softness, a rounded taste and an enveloping aroma. These are the qualities of Anfora, a Grappa with a special ageing process that does not take place in barrels, but in amphora. A new technique that uses one of the oldest containers known to man, terracotta vases useful for transporting and storing wine, oil, honey and other food.

The amphorae we have chosen are a blend of different types of clay, materials that come from Montelupo and Impruneta, Tuscan towns famous since the Middle Ages for working and crafting ceramics and terracotta. An innovative technique for distillates that we wanted to experiment with, achieving excellent results: the micro-oxygenation, twice what we find when using barrels, enriches the Grappa’s elegance and softness, giving the characteristics of ageing without the classic flavour of wood.

Anfora is a Grappa made of a blend of pomace from grapes indigenous to the Trentino region: 80% Teroldego, Marzemino and Merlot varieties; 20% Chardonnay, Müller Thurgau and Moscato varieties, which give it the typical, unmistakable aromas of this area.
