PINOTU GRAPPA DI MOSCATO
Every year, the Moscato marcs are sent to the distillery to be converted in Grappa. This
operation is carried right after the marcs are separated from the liquid part. Here, the
Master distiller uses old copper alembics for the bain-marie procedure. This allows to
extract from the marcs all the fragrances and bouquet which characterize this distillate.
The obtained grappa is placed in large oak barrels to rest for about 18 months. Afterwards
it will be refined in barriques for about 6 months.
