A great after dinner drink.It is light bodied with pure and soft flavors. The extra barrel aging that it receives adds just a touch of color and and makes this Grappa slightly richer and softer that the unaged Sesta Di Sopra Grappa.

I had only ever had Grappa once before tasting this one (and it was not good grappa) so I was a little wary coming to it. I was surprised by this and I am glad to have my mind changed. Smooth and clean with a touch of butterscotch and vanilla this spirit has an excellent finish with a low pleasant burn. There is a complexity to the flavor that will please any aficionado while still being smooth enough to pour for the novice like me. Definitely a new after dinner drink to try out.

Sesta di Sopra is a tiny producer of Brunello, a Massive 340 cases a year, so as you can guess they don't make much Grappa. The have a small portion that gets aged in small barrels for a year and the results are magnificent. The nose is spiced and somewhat restrained for Grappa, in fact this spirit seems less Grappa like and more Armaganc'ish, (apologies to any Armagnac producers) ok maybe a stretch but the supple balance, depth of flavors really makes this spirit special, and for me the Hallmark of any great drink is the finish and this has got it, a really complete, long and layered finish...Superb value.
Drink from 2016 to 2026

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
