A straw hats maker gets a bit carried away and his son ends up being a professional Grappa producer. Che bello!
Poli was founded in 1898 in Schiavon, near Bassano del Grappa (in the hearth of Veneto, the most typical region for Grappa production), it is an artisan distillery solely owned by the Poli family. Jacopo Poli’s great-grandfather took his hobby size still door-to-door on a small cart, collecting pomaces from winemakers. Now the Poli family no longer goes door-to-door, instead, they now use an alembic still with 12 copper cauldrons.
Tenuta San Guido is an Italian wine producer, known as a producer of "Super Tuscan" wines. Its wine Sassicaia is considered one of Italy's leading Bordeaux-style red wines. Grappa di Sassicaia’s marc comes from its Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. It is aged for 4 years in barrique style barrels and later finished for 6 months in barrels previously holding Sassicaia wine.
