BEPI TOSOLINI
FRIULI, ITALY

The story of Tosolini Grappa began after World War II, when Bepi Tosolini, a native of Friuli and enthusiastic expert on his homeland and its customs, began to transform grappa, a distilled spirit of simple peasant origins, into a preferred product for the most refined and demanding palates.

Bepi was the first to use ash wood barrels for aging grappa, which in his opinion was supposed to have a clear and crystalline white colour rather than a yellow hue, like the products that came from the old, oak barrels that had traditionally been used up until that time; at the same time he managed to capture all of the aromas of the distillate while exalting all of its other organoleptic characteristics as well.
