Red Wine Vinegar
Flavourful, yet never overwhelming, Villa Calcinaia’s Aceto di Vino Rosso is an ideal addition to any sort of cuisine, whether for gourmet cooking or the simplest dishes. Made from selected wines, Villa Calcinaia’s red wine vinegar is produced according to local tradition, which the Capponi family can document since 1693. It is of a fine, clear colour, and carefully processed for a balanced taste. Its aroma, mellowed by a slow maturation in the bottle, evokes the fullness of the wine from which it originates.
Grappa of Sangiovese
Villa Calcinaia’s Grappa, following an ancient Chianti recipe, is made from the dregs of grapes of the Sangiovese, typical varietal of the hills of the Chianti Classico. After a lengthy fermentation, the rich and fragrant dregs are distilled following the traditional method of the alternate still. The Grappa is left to ripen for five months in stainless-steel containers until it reaches 42° C. The Grappa is Crystal clear in colour and shade. Its taste is warm, suave and harmonious.
Grappa of Vinsanto
The ageing in wood, in small barrels where the vinsanto was to rest, increases the complexity of this particular “acquavite di vinaccia”, complying with the aromas of the grapes subjected to drying and enriching the bouquet with delicate notes of vanilla, almond and spices.
