Vittorio 'Gianni' Capovilla is world-renowned as one of the best, if not the best, distiller in the world, in particular for his passion: fruit distillates, rums and grappa.
Capovilla defines its delicious grappa as the noble expression of a "poor" product.
Grappa di Brunello Capovilla is obtained by means of double passage distillation in small copper stills in a bain-marie of grape marc of the Sangiovese del Brunello di Montalcino variety, harvested in the autumn, winter.
Vittorio has made the excellence of the raw material and the purity of the distillates its true reason for living.
The processing that Capovilla has chosen for its precious raw material is highly crafted.
The result is precisely pure grappa and distillates, as true connoisseurs.
Brunello Capovilla's grappa smells of ripe red fruits accompanying a full-bodied and elegant flavor, rich in aromas of fruit and spices.
In the mouth it is kind and round with good complexity and persistence.
After distillation, the distillate is stored in steel barrels for 2 years, a process called by Vittorio Capovilla "rest-esterification".
It is then bottled diluted with spring water and brought to 44% vol. without added sugar, flavorings or other.
