PRODUCT ON PRE-ARRIVAL STATUS - ETA OF MID-MAY 2013 -
Grappa Tignanello is obtained from the distillation of the marc from the Sangiovese and Cabernet grapes growing in the Tignanello vineyard which is situated on the Antinori estate ’Tignanello’. As soon as the marc has fermented, it is drawn off from the tanks and pressed, and immediately taken to the distillery. This procedure guarantees that distillation is carried out using the best quality marc possible - rich is alcohol and more importantly with good aromatic characteristics. A very careful selection is then made of the different ‘lots’ of grappa resulting from the distillation of the different ‘lots’ of marc, and only those which are the best (the ones with most elegance and balance) are then blended and bottled.
