Choose thick skinned grapes. Wash them and pat dry, gently, with absorbent kitchen paper.
Cut every berry from the stalk but you have to leave a little of the stem attached to each.
Prick every berry with a needle and put in one or two glass jars, filling them.
Add cloves and cinnamon. Let sugar dissolve in "grappa"; then pour it into the jars, covering all the fruits.
Cork hermetically every jar and store at least 2 months before eating.
