Grappa of the “Wild Woman climbing over the hills” of Barolo Reserve
Label from the original drawings by Romano Levi.
On the hills of the Langhe which have proved to be one of the finest terroirs for the vine, the pomace of Nebbiolo grapes grown to make DOCG Barolo wine produces a Grappa of extraordinary, exhilarating balance resulting from curing underground and lengthy ageing in wood.

The Levi Distillery continues the tradition created by Romano Levi, the “angelic grappa maker”, producing grappas with the pomace of Piedmontese vines and using the much-loved “Donna Selvatica” on the label. The collection is completed by a selection of digestifs and vermouth.
Grappa aged over 38 months in wood.
Nebbiolo from Barolo DOCG.
Pomace origin and conservation
Still dripping with must, the freshly-pressed skins, stems and seeds of grapes grown in DOC and DOCG wine-growing villages of Barolo, Serralunga, La Morra and Grinzane Cavour and blended following an old Serafino recipe, and immediately compressed into underground pits for a natural curing process that is able to extract all the aromas and flavours of the nebbiolo grapes.
Characteristics of the still
Copper pot still, the only direct fire device in the world still being used for distilling Grappa.
“Grappa distillata da ignari” (Grappa distilled by unaware people) with the discontinuous method with direct fire and submerged pomace.
The steam generated from the distillation of pomace, enriched with alcohol-aromatic components, is condensed with subsequent fractional distillation of the phlegm in a copper column with 7 plates.
This procedure, perfected by Romano Levi and still strictly adhered to, ensures the perfect conservation of the aromatic components, important for the organoleptic characteristics of Grappa.
