Grappa Ticino - the spirit with the intensive aroma made from the Merlot grape “Grappa” or “marc” is the French definition of a distillate made from grape residue – that is, the skin and pips which are left over from the wine production, after the grapes have been pressed. The grape residue for this grappa comes from the vineyards of the Italian region of Switzerland. Since the aroma of a fruit is found primarily in the skin, grappa is an intensively aromatic drink. The Merlot grape gives the product its special tanginess and strength. We have our Grappa Ticino distilled for us in Tessin, and then we add the finishing touch with erba ruta (wine rue). The wine rue is indigenous to the Mediterranean region but also grows north of the Alps. It is used as a medicinal herb and also a spice, and was once used to enhance wines.
