A straw hats maker gets a bit carried away and his son ends up being a professional Grappa producer. Che bello!
 
Poli was founded in 1898 in Schiavon, near Bassano del Grappa (in the hearth of Veneto, the most typical region for Grappa production), it is an artisan distillery solely owned by the Poli family. Jacopo Poli’s great-grandfather took his hobby size still door-to-door on a small cart, collecting pomaces from winemakers. Now the Poli family no longer goes door-to-door, instead, they now use an alembic still with 12 copper cauldrons. Naturalmente.
 
SmartAss Corner:
1) Repetitio est mater studiorum (this one is in Latin!). Grappa is grape-based pomace brandy of Italian origin. Fermentation and distillation must occur on the pomace (‘the leftovers’ of winemaking), no added water is allowed.
2) Italians also add Grappa to espresso coffee to create a caffè corretto, meaning "corrected coffee". Incredibile.
3) Italian law requires winemakers to sell their pomace to grappa makers; this is a measure that was taken against moonshine operations. They say it works. Sfortunatamente.

Luce della Vite was the first wine ever produced in Montalcino by blending Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. In 1998, Luce della Vite teamed up with Jacopo Poli to create a Grappa of exquisite quality that honours the terroir from which this outstanding wine originates. This is young-special-edition-single-vintage Grappa. Certo.

While not a totally unpleasant...

While not a totally unpleasant taste, it did take me by surprise. I don't get ANY of the nose or palate flavors that are related here. In fact, I'm still having a difficult time explaining exactly what it is I DID taste, it was that far out of the norm. The closest I can recall was having Benedictine for the first time. Read too late about putting it in coffee which, if I manage another tasting box with it in there, I may try. Grappa is not something I'd drink daily, though. Like absinthe, it's something you'd either have on a rare occasion, or use to entertain your guests and friends by providing them with an experience they might not otherwise have. This is a drink to expand their palate a little with something slightly off-the-wall. That said, I just can't give it a low score because, despite the strangeness, I LIKED it. I just don't LOVE it enough to drink a whole bottle before it goes bad.

I got to try this as a sample.
On the nose I got: Wax, honeycomb, black tea, liquorice, figs, pulp fruits, anise, herbs and then floral notes, and maybe some spearmint.
On the palate, it was: so smooth, I mean no alcohol burn at all; watery start but then it develops as fresh & fruity. I found grape plums and figs, fruits and herbs, then floral notes, with a bit of mint.
The finish was short-lived, leaving me with a herbal & grassy note.
Adding few drops of water added to the herbal and fruity notes.
Weird to have found this not dry and no coffee notes.
To me this was a Sweet and Herbal dram, quite ok and cool to experience, but not something to want as a bottle.
