Ornellaia Eligo dell'Ornellaia Grappa Riserva - 50cl | 42% ABV

Eligo dell’Ornellaia Grappa Riserva illustrates Ornellaia’s philosophy that an uncompromising selection process in the vineyard, and indeed at every step in the production process is fundamental to creating the highest possible quality.

As autumn arrives and Ornellaia’s wines are placed into their French oak barrels for ageing, the fresh wine pomace is taken to an artisanal distillery hidden deep in the Tuscan countryside. Here the delicate aromatic heart of the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grape skins are captured.

After careful distillation in small copper stills, the grappa is aged for a minimum of 3 years in Ornellaia’s very own barrels (twice the required length of time to obtain the Riserva status) before being blended with older vintage reserves to achieve additional depth and character. Being distilled, aged, blended and bottled at the same distillery is the guarantee of a truly artisanal Grappa.

With its soft aromas, silky texture and beautiful golden colour Eligo dell’Ornellaia Grappa Riserva is a unique, distinctive hand-crafted style, of this popular Italian spirit.
