Invecchiamento delle Bevande Spiritose (Ageing of Spirits): It refers to the practise of keeping a spirit in wooden barrels or casks (oak, cherry or ash) which have not undergone waterproofing operations. In Italy, for Grappa, we can distinguish between “short ageing” which does not last more than 12 months, and “long ageing”, which can last for up to 15 years.
