    The sourcing of the musts to make these grappe is as important as the distillation itself. Vittorio seeks out the must according to the quality of the grapes each year from a vast array of producers to use in the grappe.
    The must is distilled using a baine-marie method in custom made small copper stills, this distils the grappa at a low temperature, very slowly. Though this method is time consuming it extracts the maximum amount of flavours and aromas from the must. The first part of the distillation contains toxic methyl alcohol and the last part of the distillation contains undesirable elements such as seed oils and other unpleasantries. These parts are therefore discarded and what is left is the clean and pure heart of the grappa. The grappa is left to age for a few years before being cut with the freshest spring water which reduces the alcohol substantially. Each bottle is unique, the label handwritten and hand sealed using wax.

    VENETO

    A fantastic distillato with slightly fiery aromas bursting with spirit and vivacity. It is complex and savoury and yet also complemented by an underlying sweet core. It shows notes of caramelised pear and quince desserts, nuts, vanilla and honey. Complex hints of toasted wood add to the intrigue, with a glycerol silky warm texture.

    The Winery: Capovilla Distillati
    Many in Italy believe Capovilla Distillati to be the best producer of Grappa in the country. Owner Vittorio Capovilla has chosen to distil his Grappa using small stills that he has especially built for him by a German artisan. He has also chosen to use an artisanal distillation method for his products. Capovilla is also well known for his use of very low levels of sulphur dioxide, and of only very ripe fruit grown in high hillside vineyards.
