The main aim of this work was to evaluate the leaching of copper in grappa from distillation plant that treats Cabernet and Sangiovese marcs (Montepulciano and Chianti, Tuscany). Copper content (determined by atomic absorption spectrometry, AAS) was 1.05 Â± 0.03 mg L-1in industrial distillates (Cabernet marc, 82.3% alcohol, v/v), and 3.7 Â± 0.2 Î¼g L-1in artificial grappa (62.0%, Cabernet) obtained by distilling marc in a laboratory-scale glassware plant. The artificial grappa distillate was refluxed over copper shavings, and copper content, CCu, was analysed in relation to reflux time and wear of the copper bell. The results showed that CCutrend was almost linear with increasing alcohol concentration and constant reflux time, and vice versa. The ratios of selected volatile components were not influenced by reflux on the shavings.
