All about making whisky
A marc brandy, made from Corvina grapes, after they have been dried on straw mats and used to produce Italy’s well-known Amarone della Valpolicella; the marc is then distilled by Master Distiller Gianni Capovilla in his famous water-bath stills just outside the town of Bassano. Grappa di Amarone is a distinguished eau de vie. Aged in oak barrels, it is characterised by notes of honey, lemon, camomile, exotic fruit (pineapple, banana) and cloves.
Several hours later, the bouquet offers other more fibrous and simultaneously juicier aromas (ripe plums, yellow peaches). It is the privilege of the truly great spirits to be free and changing in their movements. And in so doing, they remind us that when it comes to tasting, modesty is the mother of virtues. All bottles of Capovilla spirits are laced, waxed and finally stamped by hand, reflecting the care that is taken at every stage of production. The handwritten label records the type of fruit, the year of harvest and the number of each bottle. A genuine work of art.

Vittorio Gianni Capovilla is recognised as one of the best distillers in the world. Intensely passionate about fruit, the former mechanic is dedicated to seeking out its rarest and most remarkable varieties in the Alps and Italy or indeed in France and Romania. A veritable engineer of nature, he has, since 1976, been dedicated to finding new ways to purify his eaux de vie and preserve the essence of its fruit and pomace, filing numerous patents related to distillation, conservation and reduction before bottling.
