GAJA Ca' Marcanda Grappa Magari - 50cl | 45% ABV

The GAJA Ca' Marcanda Grappa Magari is made from the pomace of the seductive Magari red wine produced at the stunning Ca’Marcanda Estate in Bolgheri, Tuscany. Magari is usually a blend of the Cabernet's, Merlot and Petit Verdot. The fresh pomace from the wine (the solid remains of the grape – skins, pulp, seeds and stems of the fruit) is immediately distilled after fermentation ends. Distillation happens slowly in order to conserve all of the varietal characteristics and aromas of the pomace. The alcohol vapours are then funnelled into a distillation column as the pomace is slowly warmed and the distillate is divided into 3 parts, the head, the heart and the tail. The Grappa is obtained by selecting the heart, i.e. the middle part of the distillation, and discarding the head and tail. The spirit for Grappa Magari is then aged for just the right amount of time in barrel to add texture and also give it that distinctive warm caramel hue. GAJA's Grappa Magari has a full, floral nose with accents of resin. Well balanced, good structure this has a wonderful line of development, from the nose right the way through to its intense finish.
