Poli Barrique Solera di Famiglia N/V

The 18-98 Family Solera was founded  in 2001, keeping aside every year 7  barrels of Grappa until 2014, thus  reaching 98 barriques dedicated to this product. The youngest spirit that is gradually introduced in the family solera has a minimum aging of 18 months in barrique. Since 2015 we created a blend of the various vintages, in order to obtain a Grappa featuring unique and unmistakable style throughout the  years. 

The Solera method is an aging system that allows the grappa to merge different years in a harmonious blend as the time goes by. The new vintage is introduced in the barriques located on the highest row in the aging cellar, while the Grappa to be bottled is taken from the row close to the soil (solera). The solera row is never emptied completely, but just a part of it, which will be replaced by an equal amount of Grappa coming from the second row, which will be consequently fulfilled by the third row and so on, with a series of successive passages. This way on the lowest row, a blend of older and older vintages is obtained.

Tasting Notes

Its aroma recalls a little wooden box full of chocolate, vanilla, liquorice and freshly toasted coffee beans.

Spirit Name Meaning

“Love drives away pain…” the children of Antonio Poli were told on March 21st 2001, when the Poli family hugged their dad for the last time. Now it was their turn to carry on, with the same enthusiasm.

Antonio’s children kept one of the 9 barriques of the Grappa he distilled, his last vintage, and since then, every year they stored a few batches made in the same style. “Toni had asked us to produce 9 barrels every year, without ever revealing why he chose this number.”

After a thousand conjectures, knowing how superstitious he was, his children guessed the hidden meaning: 9 represents a cycle that ends and begins again, as well as the “sonship”. Giampaolo, Jacopo, Barbara and Andrea like to think that this was his way of telling them: “Carry on, I will always be with you”.

Hence, they decided to continue with his project, using the “solera” method, they were able to obtain a Grappa that cherishes the memory of time.
