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 Barolo Capovilla is obtained by double-passage distillation in small copper stills in a bain-marie of pomace of Nebbiolo grapes from the Barolo vineyards, 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.
The Barolo Capovilla grappa smells of ripe red fruits accompany 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.
What we perceive immediately is the presence of the "king of wines" through a vigorous taste of black grapes, blackberry and delicate flowers, such as pink, lilac and violet.
The taste of Barolo spreads on the palate and does not abandon it: a persistence in perfect consistency with the centuries-old history of kings of wines that belong to it.
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.
