Grappa Elevata in Barili di Sassicaia from Jacopo Poli is an elegant, warm and spicy grappa distilled from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc marc.
In the glass this grappa shimmers in an appealing golden tone with amber reflections. The spicy bouquet is dominated by aromas of cedar wood, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa and coffee. This is accompanied by fine hints of candied fruit, some honey and floral accents of jasmine.
Very powerful and with good structure as well as soft fullness, this Italian grape marc spirit skilfully captures the palate. An aroma typical of the grape variety with fine fruit and herb notes merges with the notes of the nose to form a warm, spicy overall picture. The finish has a good, pleasant length and a hint of liquorice and aniseed.
Distillation of Poli Grappa Elevata in Barili di Sassicaia
This grappa is a collaboration of Marchese Nicoló Incisa della Rocchetta and Jacopo Poli. The two grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) are fermented on the skins for two weeks. The mash is then gently pressed and the skins and seeds are immediately placed in the copper kettle.
The still fresh pomace is traditionally distilled in old copper kettles. After distillation, this grappa still has 75 % by volume. By adding distilled water, this grappa has an alcohol content of 40% by volume. Afterwards this Grappa rests for 4 years in barriques from French oak and another year in old Sassicaia barrels, in order to be filled finally gently filtered on the bottle.
