ROBERTO CASTAGNER - Torba Rossa Grappa Speciale
Torba Rossa is a very special grappa obtained from selected red grape marc smoked with peat.
For Torba Rossa the fermentation process is accomplished without air, while the temperature and pH are constantly controlled so that nothing can change its natural course; in this way the finest and most delicate fragrances are kept intact. It is in this stage that the marc comes into contact with fine wood and peat vapours: the secret that makes Torba Rossa a very special product lies in choosing the right moment and the time needed for the marc to acquire a well-balanced aroma.
This is followed by distillation in copper stills at low pressure and moderate temperature to obtain a product that is smooth to the palate and rich in varietal aromas.
