"Sarpa” means “pomace.” The piercing ripeness of the opening aroma is more astringent and sap-like than fruity or ripe; it ends up being a rugged, musty, traditional bouquet of grape skins, pulp and seeds. In a startling turn away from the bouquet’s direction, the taste is sublimely sweet and fruity at entry; at midpalate the taste features an ambrosial richness rarely found in grappa. Finishes long and sweet."

"In Venetian dialect sarpa means pomace, or the grape solids that are used to make grappa. Sarpa di Poli is made by distilling the marcs of two grape varieties, Cabernet (40%) and Merlot (60%), from the hills of Bassano. This grappa boasts an herbal bouquet with notes of mint, rose and geranium." ~ Distillery notes

Poli Distillery"The secret to distilling a great Grappa is simple: you just need fresh pomace and a hundred years of experience!"

Since 1898 the Poli family has been operating their artisanal grappa distillery located near Bassano del Grappa, in the heart of the Veneto. Today, fourth-generation Jacopo Poli has elevated grappa production to an art form. Selecting only the freshest grape pomace from some of the best winemakers in Italy, he uses a traditional copper pot still - in operation for more than a century! Jacopo works very closely with these producers during harvest and never accepts more grape pomace than can be immediately processed. This attention to detail has resulted in grappas with exceptional fruit character and unparalleled elegance.
