In the years 2000 Gianfranco Invitti, Aldo's son, decided to carry on with the tradition and the family business. And he did not do it alone, because Egidio followed along.
Once again father and son carrying on the family passion, I was once again the core of the strong bond that united the Invitti family, the tradition of the distillery of the Valtellina.
Although they had different roles and personalities, Gianfranco and Egidio were determined to keep a unique reality alive in Valtellina, they were aware of the important role of the distillery in the field of viticulture in Valtellina.
But the Invitti family was certainly not willing to stop there.
It became easier and easier for me to understand that their first real intention was to unite tradition and innovation.
What can I say... an ambitious plan, but why not try it? Also because I love challenges.
It was then that the "Linea Nuova" was born, a new series of high quality grappas, coming from a meticulous selection of the best pomace in Valtellina. This precious material is distilled through the steam method, controlled thanks to my new steam boiler, carrying the grappa through precise filtration processes and giving it a fresh innovative "dress".
The line is particularly suitable for tasting and it is to be accompanied with a meal.
