Nebbiolo da Barbaresco DOCG, Dolcetto d’Alba DOC and Barbera d’Alba DOC.
Provenance and storage of pomace
From the DOC and DOCG vineyards of historic producers in Neive, Barbaresco, Trezzo, Treiso and Alba.
The pomace, chosen to be fresh and still dripping with must, mixed according to an ancient recipe of Serafino Levi, is immediately compressed in underground pits in order to obtain a natural tanning, capable of extracting all the aromas and flavors of the grape.
Characteristics of the still
Discontinuous copper still, the only one in the world still operating on direct fire for the distillation of grappa.
“Grappa distilled from unknowing” by discontinuous direct-fire method with submerged pomace.
The steam generated by the distillation of the pomace, enriched with the alcoholic-aromatic components, is condensed with subsequent fractional distillation of the phlegm in a 7-plate copper column.
This procedure, perfected by Romano Levi and to this day strictly adhered to, guarantees the perfect preservation of all the aromatic components, decisive for the organoleptic characteristics of Grappa.
