GAJA Grappa di Brunello di Montalcino Rennina - 50cl | 45% ABV

The GAJA Grappa di Brunello di Montalcino Rennina is made from the Sangiovese grape sourced from the Rennina vineyards grown on the beautiful Tuscan estate of Pieve Santa Restituta. 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. At the start of this process, the Grappa has an alcohol content of 70-75°. Before bottling, distilled water is added to bring the Grappa to 45% ABV. GAJA Grappa di Brunello di Montalcino Rennina is a luminous Grappa with pleasant, delicate aromas. On the palate its rich structure mirrors the aromatic components, with its intense floral notes, excellent concentration and slightly peppery finish.
