XO means “extra old” and these are the letters assigned to the finest spirits, on condition that they have been aged in wood for at least six years, reaching perfect maturity.
Sibona’s XO project was born several years ago with the meticulous and skilful selection of limited quantities of the best grape marc from the most famous Langhe and Roero vineyards. The Nebbiolo (Barolo and Barbaresco) and Barbera varieties were used by our master distillers to create a blend unique in the world of fine quality Grappe, a special cuvée.
Sibona’s Grappa XO spends more than six years ageing in small French oak tonneaux in the distillery’s historic cellars.
The result of so much passion is a spirit with warm and complex flavours, with a strong and innovative personality, dedicated to real connoisseurs.
