This “Limited Edition, Single Barrel” has been created to celebrate the prestigious milestone reached by Grappa Botti da Porto at the end of 2016, i.e. the conquest of the title of Best Grappa in the World at the IWSC international competition in London. Every bottle of this Single Barrel Grappa Riserva comes from the bottling of a single, selected barrel used to make Port.
