Today’s Grappa is definitely less aggressive than the Grappa of the past. It should be said, however, that a certain pungency is typical of Grappa, due to its high alcohol content.
For this reason Grappa should be served cold, in a tulip glass; it is best to avoid high serving temperatures and glasses with a narrow chimney that emphasize the pungency. It must be pointed out that the sensitivity to Grappa pungency varies between individuals. The same Grappa can be perceived as ‘dry’ or ‘smooth’ by different people depending on their subjective evaluation criteria.
PO’ di Poli Secca is a Grappa defined as ‘dry’ following the evaluation of the distillery’s technical staff. It is, however, a harmonious distillate, well-structured, reminiscent of freshly mown grass, with notes of red flowers, geranium, rose and violet, typical aromas of the vine it is obtained from, Merlot.
PO’ di Poli Secca presents no roughness or aggressiveness, yet it gives a heat-like tactile sensation that envelops the mouth and makes your tongue click.
