In the Venetian dialect Sarpa means vinaccia or the grape solids that are used to make grappa. Sarpa di Poli is made by distilling the marcs of 2 grape varietals: Cabernet (40%) and Merlot (60%), from the hills of Bassano. It has a delicate, floral bouquet, slightly fragranced with juniper berry. It is silky on the palate and persistently tasty.

Wine EnthusiastSmells of ripe grapes, grape must and lead pencil in the initial whiffs; air contact stimulates baking spices, black currants, jasmine, pepper and paraffin. Entry is crisp, tart and intensely ripe; midpalate highlights black grape to maximum concentration. Finishes bittersweet to sweet.
