    Things to know about
    Grappa | flavoured
     

    The distillate of wine pomace, which remains on grape skins after pressing, is called grappa. But only if the marc comes from Italy and the grappa (yes, in Italy it is female!) was distilled in Italy.

    Probably grappa is ancient. Grappa was first mentioned in writing in the 15th century and with the invention of the steam boiler, the knowledge of distillation spread, especially through the Jesuits and the so-called Störbrenner, who moved through the area with a mobile distillery and distilled the grape marc of the winegrowers.

    During the First World War, the legendary Kaiserjäger were supplied with grappa to strengthen morale in the wet and cold trenches. Thus the grappa also became a national sanctuary.

    Veneto and Friuli were the centres of the distillers.

    The name Monte Grappa is a clear indication that the Jesuit Francesco Terzi also came from Brescia – because even today, some of the best grappa distilleries in northern Italy are still at home. Every grappa lover knows Marzadro, Nonino or Jacopo Poli. They are all at home in Veneto or Friuli. The distillation rights date back to Empress Maria-Theresia.

    Modern technology and varietal purity brought quality.

    Rough farm liquor has long since turned into a noble brandy. Modern distillation plants still separate alcohol and water as steam, as these have different boiling points. Today, however, several times, which increases the quality. In addition, grapes are no longer pressed as hard as they used to be. The pomace therefore contains much more juice, lands faster in the kettle and is much cleaner. That's why it's possible to burn single varieties today.

    Muscat or Traminer grappa is very popular because of its sweet-spicy nature. Trebbiano or Sangiovese give the typical tart grappa and specialties from Brunello or Barolo grape can be very powerful. By the way, there is no Italian dinner without grappa at the end, also for this reason you can buy more than 100 different grappas of all price and quality levels from us all year round. SUPERIORE.DE
