Grappa del Borro
Petit Verdot

This white Grappa is distilled from Petit Verdot grapes 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 distillation methods were developed between the VIII and VI century B.C. in Mesopotamia and rapidly applied to wine to make schnapps".
