Character Goatson
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. Naturalmente.
 
SmartAss Corner:
1) Repetitio est mater studiorum (this one is in Latin!). Grappa is grape-based pomace brandy of Italian origin. Fermentation and distillation must occur on the pomace (‘the leftovers’ of winemaking), no added water is allowed.
2) Italians also add Grappa to espresso coffee to create a caffè corretto, meaning "corrected coffee". Incredibile.
3) Italian law requires winemakers to sell their pomace to grappa makers; this is a measure that was taken against moonshine operations. They say it works. Sfortunatamente.

Luce della Vite was the first wine ever produced in Montalcino by blending Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. In 1998, Luce della Vite teamed up with Jacopo Poli to create a Grappa of exquisite quality that honours the terroir from which this outstanding wine originates. This is young-special-edition-single-vintage Grappa. Certo.

Italian law requires winemakers to sell their pomace to Grappa makers; this is a measure that was taken to discourage moonshine operators from producing their own juice. Sfortunatamente.
100 kg of moist, fresh pomace produces about 9 to 10 liters of Grappa.
Grappa is grape-based pomace Brandy of Italian origin. Fermentation and distillation must occur on the pomace (“the leftovers” of winemaking); no added water is allowed.
Italians add Grappa to espresso coffee to create a caffè corretto, meaning "corrected coffee". Incredibile.
Grappa can help digestion, so it's perfect after meals.
Grappa is usually very high proof, above 40%, and has a somewhat justified reputation as firewater because, you know, it’s really alcoholic.
