The relationship between Grappa and the war is well known and is now part of the history of this distillate: soldiers were given abundant rations of liquid courage, and it was in those circumstances that men from central and southern Italy got to know and taste for the first time the aqua vitae from grape marc.
Since then the bond between Monte Grappa, the city of Bassano del Grappa and the Grappa distillate has become indissoluble.
Grappa Bassano Classica is obtained by distilling the grape marc from vines of the Breganze DOC area, which includes Bassano del Grappa.
It is a clean, neat and sincere Grappa that lends itself to be served in small glasses or to lace coffee.
Bassano Classica is often used for the “rasentin” ritual, which consists in cleaning up with a few drops of Grappa the cup where you just had your coffee.
