Description:

Grappa is a distillate of the pomace of grapes. It is made according to the traditional “bain-marie” method, whereby pomace is placed in copper alembics set in steel boilers. The heat produced by the boiling water in the steel boilers, and the steam entering the copper alembics, give rise to the actual distillation process of the pomace therein. During distillation the headings and tailings are removed manually and the result is grappa averaging 75% alcohol by volume. Demineralized water with 0.7% sugar content is added in order to bring grappa down to the desired alcoholic strength. Grappa thus obtained is filtered, cooled down to 16 degrees below zero and then filtered again.

Mezzolombardo–Trento (the main town of the district) is the place where the de Varda family (noblemen since 1678) owned vineyards and produced their own wines and grappa. In the early 19th century, great grandfather Michele Dolzan started a distillery in these very cellars, handing down such activity until the present fifth generation. Passionately fond of the traditions and teachings of his father Giovanni, Luigi Dolzan has pursued this activity alongside with his sons Michele and Mauro. This they’ve done inspired by such deep-rooted ideals, constantly in contact with changing markets and modern technologies but always respectful of the family’s traditions.

Aromatic, intense, gently ethereal, enveloping, fine, fresh and fragrant, with typical Moscato grapes scents: delicate floral hints of brier rose petals, orange blossom, lily of the valley, elderflower, sage and citrus fruit.

Smooth, delicate, gentle, well-rounded, refined and intense. Complex, characteristic, lively and persistent notes of apple and pineapple can be detected, as well as an aromatic background with notes of bread crust, all in line with the olfactory perceptions.

The very essence of the moscato grape is preserved in this grappa.
