Quality and respect for the tradition make the Trentino a territory with excellent Grappas. Trentino distillates flow limpid from the stills, offering the taster all their particular aromas due not only to the vine species cultivated, but also to the careful and skilful hands of man. Grappa has belonged to the traditions of the people of Trentino and their culture for ages: the land as a source of sustenance for the population has always received the best of care. Today, over 90% of the vine species cultivated are of Certified Origin, thus guaranteeing top quality standards.
The most widespread vine species with red grapes are Schiava, Teroldego and Marzemino. Among the white grapes are Muscat, Müller Thurgau, Traminer, Riesling, Silvaner and Nosiola.
In the Trentino region, continuous-cycle stills for the industrial production of Grappa have met with very little favour. The respect for the traditional double-boiler still is a distinctive feature of Trent distillates. One name above all deserves a special mention: the still maker Tullio Zadra, who created many splendid double-boiler distillation tools.
Trentino Grappas stand out for their smoothness and fragrance, together with soft and delicate notes of fruit; offering expressions of great freshness, above all in the products without ageing in wooden barrels.
