Castello Banfi Grappa is a fashionable aperitif, or add some to an espresso for a perfect caffè corretto.
Unlike brandy, which is distilled from wine, Grappa is distilled from the soul of the grape – the solids left behind when the juice of the grape starts on its journey to becoming wine. After the juice has been extracted from the grapes, the pomace is distilled by discontinuous steam in copper patent stills. It is then refi ned in small oak barriques to yield a grappa praised for its smoothness and depth.
