Luigi Barile has made quality a philosophy of life. He was born poor, he tried lamiseria, he had help and solidarity from generous men and teachers of life, he fought and invested in himself.
He understood that human existence is a gamble.
He took the necessary risks, played and won.
The 18-year-old Luigi Barile grappa aging is the distillate of all this.
Unlike all other spirits, grappa is a natural product that can be drunk immediately as soon as the still warm liquid condenses.
It is therefore already ready, even if its taste can be softened with time.
This can be done by aging or aging in barrels for a good 18 years.
Aging takes place over a period of one or more years in stainless steel tanks, but aging is what gives a truly extraordinary product.
This is the reason why the barrels are stored in the cellars of the distillery, where, in the dark and in the right level of humidity, the distillates age slowly.
The woods that hold this Luigi Barile grappa have first contained whiskey and fragrant rums from the Antilles.
So select barrels, meticulously researched by Luigi Barile, who does not spare anything to get the most out of his passion.
