The Antica Distilleria Domenico Sibona is located in the Roero area in the municipality of Piobesì d'Alba, a few kilometers from Alba. The special thing about Grappa Sibona is that it has a special distilling license, the No 1 of the UTF. Nebbiolo marcs from freshly selected grapes, chosen by Sibona during the harvest, are used. Distillation is done entirely in-house in copper stills and aging takes place for a long period in stainless steel tanks. A maturation of 2 years in medium sized classic oak barrels and 6 months in port wine barrels complete this grappa. The storage in port wine barrels was tested by Sibona as an innovation and leads to high-quality results. Tasting notes:Colour: Intense amber.
