Mazzetti d'Altavilla

The Mazzetti family began its business of distilling in the heart of the Monferrato fifteen years before Italy was unified and more than 50 years before the creation of the first Fiat car. In the same region, Piedmont, from which these two important events took place, Filippo Mazzetti (1816-1855) in 1846 founded in Montemagno his first distillery for the production of Grappa. In those days the skins, the raw material for the production of Grappa, were primarily considered a material deficit in the process production of wine by many winemakers, they often were not kept and selected the best, as now happens to be distilled to perfection. They say that Filippo, and after him his son Luigi, often used to regret that he wasted of this noble material which instead could be ennobled, making it a valuable and unique distillate: Grappa.
