The Giovi distillery, is a young company founded in 1987 with head offices in Valdina, near Messina in Northeast Sicily, a region that benefits from a warm Tyrrhenian climate,
The distillation still, an antique "ZADRA", is a discontinued bain-marie alembic still modified in places to better meet today’s requirements. The marc contained in the still is slowly heated to around 76 degrees to reach the necessary temperature to allow the evaporation of the alcohol. This contributes to having a correspondence between the perfume of the raw materials and that of the final product. The heads and tails are discarded and the distillate obtained is transferred into stainless steel containers and left refining for 6 to 8 months; subsequently it gets diluted with mountain spring water so to reach the desired alcoholic strength. Before release to the market the grappa undergoes a further refinement in the bottles for 4 to 6 months.
The Grappa Inzolia is colorless, limpid and crystalline. The nose reveals delicate, clean and pleasing aromas of hawthorn, hazelnut, pear and banana, imperceptible alcohol pungency. In the mouth it is intense with evident alcohol pungency which tends to dissolve rapidly, followed by a dry taste and balanced sweet note. The finish is persistent with flavors of hazelnut and pear.
