is a grappa (grape marc distillate) that is defined by law as “riserva” because it rests more than 18 months in wooden barrels. The barrels used are barriques of different woods (chestnut, cherry, beech) and not necessarily first cycle.
Each type of wood individually contributes to the specific characterization of the product.
EVO contains no added dyes. Its “nuance” is the result of its stay in barrique. The way the containers are treated and the different types of wood used, yield unexpected organic substances and colorants to this distillate. Thanks to new processing techniques, EVO has an extremely low (“trace”) essential oil content, promoting easy drinkability and increasing digestibility; it also has amounts of “methyl alcohol” at the legal minimums.
