 Product Description

Elegant, aromatic, soft and sensual with the perfume of roses, thyme and vanilla. A fantastic grappa made by the legendary Nonino family, this is brimming with floral aromatics and zesty citrus spice. The palate shows orange and wildflowers flavors that, coupled with the purity and softness of the spirit, make for an elegant grappa experience.

The pomace, collected when it is fresh and soft, is selected from Muscat grapes from vocated areas.

Limited and strictly dependent on the individual year’s harvest.

The flavour of grappa, like that of wine, depends on the type and quality of the grapes used, as well as the specifics of the distillation process. Grappa is made by distilling the skins, pulp, seeds, and stems (i.e., the pomace) left over from winemaking after pressing the grapes. It was originally made to prevent waste by using these leftovers. A similar drink, known as acquavite d'uva, is made by distilling whole must.

In Italy, grappa is primarily served as a digestivo or after-dinner drink. Its main purpose was to aid in the digestion of heavy meals. Grappa may also be added to espresso coffee to create a caffè corretto, meaning "corrected coffee". Another variation of this is the ammazzacaffè ("coffee-killer"): the espresso is drunk first, followed by a few ounces of grappa served in its own glass. In Veneto, there is resentin ("little rinser"): after finishing a cup of espresso with sugar, a few drops of grappa are poured into the nearly empty cup, swirled and drunk down in one sip.
