Po' di Poli Elegante Grappa
Poli // Veneto, Italy
A dual-varietal grappa, made primarily of Pinot Noir with a bit of Pinot Blanc must, sourced mostly in the Veneto. Distilled twice in small copper pot-stills.
Grappa/MarcEau-de-vie that is distilled from the pomace (seeds, stems, skins) left over from winemaking. Typically only grapes are used, but other fruit is acceptable. Can be aged in wood. No specific length of time required.
"A great “beginner” grappa that’s not just for beginners. Not to say that it is boring or simplistic because it is far from that. It is however super easy to enjoy and difficult to find fault with. The nose is classic but soft with notes of burnt walnut, tons of dried fruit, grape stems and flowers. The palate is all of the aforementioned with the addition of cedar, dried leather and dried guava. It is everything you could want from a grappa but at 40% abv it steers clear of controversy. "
