Grappa Gewurztraminer Trentina
The origins of the Distilleria F.lli Pisoni are lost a bit in the mists of time since the winemaking tradition has always been carried on by the numerous generations of the Pisoni, that have followed over the years. There is even information dating back to the times of the Council of Trent which took place in the mid-sixteenth century, when one reads of a certain Carlo Antonio Pisoni official supplier of wines and spirits at the court of the then Prince Archbishop Cardinal Madruzzo. Since then this company has been handed down from generation to generation up to the present day. For the Pisoni family, the distillation of grappa is an art. There are no schools that teach to distill; the progress, in this field, it is given by the combination of experience and experimentation. From the first small copper stills of the late nineteenth century, that were fed with a wood fire, we have arrived at the current steam powered plant, of which you can admire the bain-marie boilers dominated by the splendid columns, also strictly copper. The distillation of grappa is carried out in full compliance with the fundamental production rule: use a raw material of impeccable quality and freshness: the marc coming from the vinification of the grapes is delivered in the hands of the master distiller still fresh in order to preserve its aromatic essence. After a period of rest in stainless steel tanks, the grappa is ready for transformation, that is, dilution with pure water to attenuate the alcoholic part and filtration to make it brilliant like a diamond. An important variant consists in the aging of grappa in oak barrels, the barrels, which confer to the distillate, in addition to a pleasant amber color, greater complexity.
