EVO is a grappa (distilled grapes) that is legally defined as a “riserva” because it is aged for more than 18 months in wooden barrels. The barrels consist of various types of wood and not necessarily new.
Each type of wood individually helps to give the product a specific feature. Based on the various vintages and the natural and unpredictable maturation of the product during aging, EVO can have slight differences in colour and aromas. This helps further celebrate the absolute authenticity and artisanship of the product. EVO does not contain any added dyes. Its “nuance” is the result of barrel aging. The methods to process the containers and the various types of woods used give this distillate unexpected organic substances and colorants. Thanks to the new processing techniques, EVO has a very limited amount of essential oils (“traces”) encouraging the drinkability and increasing their digestion and has a quantity of methyl alcohol that is at the lowest legal limit.
