Distilleria Bertagnolli
K24 Koralis Grappa Riserva
Trentino

Founded in 1870, the Distilleria Bertagnolli has carried on the tradition of high-quality spirits for four generations.  Once the supplier to imperial courts, Bertagnolli continues to hone its techniques in order to craft smooth, aromatic grappas.  

The distillery is located in the Piana Rotaliana at the foot of the Italian Dolomites.  This landscape, once described by Dante as the “most beautiful vineyard in Europe”, is one of the few locations in Italy where the native Teroldego varietal is cultivated.  The grapes of this region are renowned for their rich aromatics, and Bertagnolli uses the pomace from these grapes to craft a grappa with nuanced aromas.


Owner: Beppe and Livia Bertagnolli
Website: www.grappabertagnolli.com
Type: Spirits

Production
The stalkless pomace is a blend of Teroldego, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer aged for two years in french oak barriques. The pomace reaches the distillery already fermented and, therefore, is immediately distilled. The distillery utilizes six steam-fired stills to implement the continuous “waterbath” method which allows Bertagnolli to distill just once while still achieving a smooth and velvety grappa.
