Product Overview
Product Details
Product reviews
A different star of the world of grappa is veteran Vittorio Capovilla. Surrounded by orchards of pear, peach and cherry that supply his renowned fruit spirits, Capovilla?s rustic distillery is a shrine to purity of purpose. Scorning laws allowing grappa-makers to add things like 20g of sugar per litre he insists that simple ingredients stand alone.
Capovilla specifies vintages. His biancas are rested for several years in steel vats before bottling or going to cask; ?harmonising not ageing,? he stresses. Many bottles are hand-finished ? sealed from bubbling pots of wax, with handwritten tags describing grape, year and qualities.
I?m not surprised Capovilla is the only distiller producing a grappa allowed to bear the tag ?di Bassano?, made solely using pomace local to the Veneto town of Bassano del Grappa. -
