Cantina Privata Ortiz aged in Barriques
Made from: selected pomace from Piedmont
Distillation: The Carlo Bocchino traditional pot still method. The distillate is obtained after having eliminated heads and tails during the distillation process, using copper columns with mushroom plates.
Ageing: The grappas that go into Ortiz are aged separately in our cellars for a period of not less than 12 months in 225 liter Allier, Troncais and Limousin barriques. After aging, they are assembled, an operation realized through a careful selection of each single barrique, since each contributes its aromatic note to the overall taste. Finally, in a delicate and patient process, the grappas are transferred to a cask, creating a blend of aromas from the different crus.
Sensorial profile: Deep color, with amber and golden highlights. To the nose it offers a complex aroma, with notes of candied fruit, honey and vanilla. Its smooth taste gives this grappa perfect harmony.
