This Grappa has been totally created by Violante, Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s daughter. Violante Gardini’s favourite wine is Cenerentola DOC, so she decided to produce a grappa in small bottles apt for young princesses.
“I am a great romantic and the Cinderella story has always made me dream a lot, then the Cenerentola wine is the one I prefer, so for this reason I have created a young grappa from just one varietal, dressed like a beautiful elegant and trendy” said Violante telling of how her first sales project came about, 600 small but very refined bottles of Grappa di Cenerentola.
Only 120 litres of grappa ..to exalt the uniqueness of this product Violante though t up a brand new packaging: only 600 bottles very small bottles, 20 cl, (perfume like), wrapped in blue tissue paper to reconnect to the Cenerentola wine, like the silk bow that gives elegant touch to the shiny black mini-shopper-bag, where Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s logo is printed in silver.
For the distillation le lees from Foglia Tonda were used, an old and very rare Sienese variety, that is used only for the production of the wine Orcia Doc “Cenerentola”. A very small artisan distillery is used where they use steam distillation in a discontinuous still with two boilers, everything is manual and the procedure is very very long.
So a grappa for young ladies is born… and not only for them!
