Tosolini Grappa di Merlot is part of Tosolini’s range of single grape variety grappa and is made from 100% Merlot grape pomace. Only the best Merlot grapes are selected from the Friulian area. The result is a very balanced grappa with an harmonious aftertaste.
The history of Tosolini grappa begins after World War II, when Bepi Tosolini dedicated himself to perfecting the art of grappa production. A passionate cultivator of his land’s traditions and a revolutionary in his field, Bepi was the first to obtain a clear, limpid distillate through an innovative ageing process in ash barrels. Using only the freshest premium grapes, Bepi achieved a final product with an exceptional aroma, flavour and smoothness that has forever transformed grappa into an elite drink for the most refined palates. Today, Bepi Tosolini represents the highest expression of quality in the grappa sector.
Located at the foot of the eastern Friulian hills, Tosolini’s modern facility maintains its original installations and ensures the authenticity of its product. The art inspired by Bepi Tosolini lives on in his successors, now third-generation distillers. His son Giovanni, along with his grandchildren Giuseppe, Bruno and Lisa, now carry on the Tosolini legacy. Together, they strive to keep the craftsmanship and excellence of Master Bepi alive through a relentless pursuit of quality and purity.
Freshly harvested Merlot pomace is distilled following the “Tosolini method” (traditional steam pot-stills, manually-operated) to preserve the intense aromas and obtain a soft grappa with an extremely aromatic body. The distillate is aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks. Only the best Merlot grapes are selected from the Friulian area. The result is a very balanced grappa with an harmonious aftertaste.
Tasting notes: intense notes of underwood with a striking raspberry notes. Fresh aftertaste with a pleasantly harmonious fruity flavour. Warm and silky to the palate.
Serve at a temperature of 16/18°C in a classic tulip glass.
