“Sarpa” in Venetian language means “grape marc”, the raw material from which Grappa is obtained. Born in 1991, Sarpa Oro is patiently aged for many years in the underground cellars of the distillery, where there are nearly 4000 225 litre oak barriques.
Using the raw materials of Merlot and Cabernet with a flowing-steam distilled process (artisanal distillation) – Sarpa Oro is simply a perfect Grappa showcasing the great evolution of this spirit, from being a popular product to a symbol of Italy in the world.
Its aroma recalls a basket with exotic fruits, vanilla, almonds and toasted hazelnuts.
Gran Bassano Rosso is a vermouth based on Merlot, red wine from the French grape variety cultivated since the end of the 19th century in the DOC area, of which the city of Bassano is part of. Merlot is particularly appreciated for its pleasant fruity notes. The unique aromatic structure of Gran Bassano Rosso is the result of a masterly infusion of over twenty botanicals, among which stand out the holy thistle and the yarrow moscata, characteristic plants from the Bassano area, as well as rhubarb, vanilla, pimento, ginger and liquorice.
Excellent as an aperitif to enjoy on the rocks and in classic cocktails.
Towards the end of the 18th century, the wine infused with Wermut (Absinthium in German), gained popularity within the French court under the name “Vermouth”, later “Vermut” in Italian. Vermouth’s recipe was enriched through time thanks to Venetian merchants importing fine spices from India, Indonesia and Africa such as cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, rhubarb, myrrh, ginger, sandal wood and turmeric; later vanilla and quinine bark came from America.
Venice, being the spice trade capital became one of the biggest distribution centres of flavoured wine, produced in many cities within the Serenissima Republic, such as Bassano. The historical bond between Bassano and Venice is represented by the clock located on the facade of Bassano’s city hall, created by Bartolomeo Ferracina, the same watchmaker who designed the clock mechanism of the Mori tower in Venice, the second most famous clock in the world, after Big Ben.
Gran Bassano Bianco is a white vermouth based on Vespaiolo, white wine from the native grapes of the DOC, of which the city of Bassano is part of.
The original aromatic identity of Gran Bassano Blanco is due to a balanced infusion of over 20 botanicals, among which stand out – hawthorn, elderflower, grapefruit, galangal, myrtle sweet and bitter orange.
Perfect as an aperitif or as a long drink with ice and tonic water.
