The Grappa Elevata in Barili di Sassicaia by Jacopo Poli is an elegant, warm spicy grappa distilled from the marc of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
In the glass, this grappa shimmers in an appealing gold tone with amber reflections. The delicate spicy bouquet is determined by aromas of cedar wood, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa and coffee. Fine hints of candied fruits, some honey and floral accents of jasmine are added.
Very powerful and with good structure and soft fullness, this Italian marc brandy skilfully takes up the palate. A grape variety typical aroma of fine fruit and herbal notes fuses with the notes of the nose to form a warm spicy overall appearance. The finale comes with a good, pleasant length and a hint of liquorice and anise.
Distillation of Poli Grappa Elevata in Barili di Sassicaia
This grappa is a collaboration between Marchese Nicoló Incisa della Rocchetta and Jacopo Poli. The two grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) are fermented on the mash for two weeks. The mash is then gently pressed and the berry skins and seeds are immediately placed in the copper kettle.
The still fresh pomace is traditionally distilled in old copper burners. After the firing process, this grappa still has 75% by volume. By adding distilled water, this pomace brandy reaches an alcohol content of 40% by volume. Afterwards, this grappa rests for 4 years in French oak barriques and another year in old Sassicaia barrels, before finally being gently filtered into the bottle.
