Grappa di Buttafuoco
The Grappa di Buttafuoco marked on the label by the “Marchio del Veliero” takes life from the long-fermented pomace of Buttafuoco Storico.
The peel of the four grapes separated from the precious wine is immediately closed to preserve it from contact with the air and in the shortest possible time taken to the Distillery, where Mastro Franco Rovero will extract the alchemical liquid.
The distillation takes place in a discontinuous manner in a small copper alembic and the grappa after rectification remains to rest for at least a year without undergoing any type of aromatization, not even that of wood, to preserve the soul of its origins.
Buttafuoco Grappa is white with an intense nose of withered fruit, dried fruit and mineral notes, very warm on the palate, enveloping and soft with a clean finish.
Chinato di Buttafuoco Storico
