Grappa invecchiata over 40 anni Barile (70 cl)
Grappa is a marc spirit originating from Italy. It is distilled from the fermented alcoholic press residues of wine production, the marc. Grappa was first mentioned by name in 1451: a Piedmontese notary transferred a cellar with a distillation plant and large quantities of grappa to his descendants. Only distillates obtained in Italy from the skins of local grapes are allowed to bear the name Grappa. Any other distillate made from foreign marc, even if produced within the national borders, is not allowed to bear the name Grappa.
