The Story of Tosolini
Bepi Tosolini represents the highest expression of quality in the grappa sector.
The history of Tosolini grappa begins after World War II, when Bepi Tosolini dedicated himself to perfecting the art of grappa production. A passionate cultivator of his land’s traditions and a revolutionary in his field, Bepi was the first to obtain a clear, limpid distillate through an innovative ageing process in ash barrels. Using only the freshest premium grapes, Bepi achieved a final product with an exceptional aroma, flavour and smoothness that has forever transformed grappa into an elite drink for the most refined palates.
Located at the foot of the eastern Friulian hills, Tosolini’s modern facility maintains its original installations and ensures the authenticity of its product. The art inspired by Bepi Tosolini lives on in his successors, now third-generation distillers. His son Giovanni, along with his grandchildren Giuseppe, Bruno and Lisa, now carry on the Tosolini legacy. Together, they strive to keep the craftsmanship and excellence of Master Bepi alive through a relentless pursuit of quality and purity.
Slow maturation and ageing give the distillate the softness that comes from slow oxidation. At Tosolini, it is equally crucial that wood ageing does not impart any undesirable flavours into the distillate. Hence, some of the spirits are aged in ashwood. The intention is not to produce a cognac-style spirit, which reflects its long cask ageing, but rather to enhance the delicate aromas obtained from the grape must with the inherent light and well-integrated flavours from the wood.
