Grappa del Borro
Riserva

The Grappa Riserva of Il Borro is exclusively made from the pomace of the same grapes destined to the production of Il Borro Wine grown in the estate’s vineyards. In order to preserve the varietal aromas and characteristics, the marc is taken to our trusted distillery Nannoni immediately after being softly pressed. The method of distillation is artisanal, with discontinuous cycle-stills and the carefull removal of ‘heads’ and ‘tails’, essential to obtain a high-quality grappa.
“The distillation methods developed between the VIII and VI centuries BC in Mesopotamia and they were soon applied to wine for the preparation of spirits"
