Single-variety grappas have existed for centuries since producers, mainly artisans, distilled the only type of marc given to them. These grappas, however, were not valued until the late 1970s- early 1980s when producers began to select and reveal all the different types of local vines available.
The main ingredient is the pomace resulting from the vinification of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, these red grapes make Valpolicella DOC wine, they grow mainly in the Verona province of Veneto. Once fermented these marcs are skillfully distilled with copper stills. The grappa originated from the process will rest for at least 12 months in oak barrels before being diluted and bottled.
Grappa Valpolicella, before being bottled, is aged for around 8 months in stainless steel barrels and oak barrels. To blend and mature the product to a molecular level.
