Grappa


Picolit Cru THE LEGENDARY GRAPPA


“Still sends chills down my spine when I taste it. The prototypical grappa of this generation and probably of one to two generations to come...
The most harmonious unaged grape-based spirit that I know. Perfection from the alluringly nuanced bouquet to the firm, tight-as-a-drum but bountiful taste that lasts and lasts...
Superlative; an elixir of the top echelon”. F. Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal - June 2011

On 1st December 1973, Benito and Giannola Nonino created the single varietal Grappa, Monovitigno® Nonino, by distilling the pomace of Picolit grapes on its own, revolutionizing the method of producing, introducing and packaging Grappa in Italy and throughout the world.
The success of this distillate over the years has been such that it has persuaded Italian and foreign distillers to follow the Nonino model.
It is obtained in limited quantity by distilling the pomace of grapes which have been selected according to the uniqueness of the vine and the production zone, or Cru.
The bottling is handmade using dated hand-blown bottles. Dated, numbered and limited production.

Primary Product


Selected and destalked pomace, harvested fresh and soft, of Picolit grapes Cru Nonino Vineyard - Friuli.
Picolit is a very rare, typical varietal of Friuli and has a proclivity to shatter.

Very limited, dated and numbered, strictly depending on the year’s harvest.

Fermentation


Under vacuum in stainless-steel tanks at controlled temperature, immediately
followed by distillation in order to avoid harmful secondary fermentations.

Rest


From six months to a year in stainless steel tanks.

100% Distilled with artisanal method


Batch method with head and tail removal, in particular and exclusive copper steam stills renewed by Benito Nonino. Distillation takes place very slowly to allow the volatile components, responsible of the fragrances, a proper evaporation and the consequent condensation preserving the precious organoleptic characteristics of vine variety chosen.

Sensations


Aristocratic elegant and pure; unique in its balance and elegance. Crystal clear, its fragrance reminds the honeycomb full of honey, a clear scent of acacia flowers and ripe quince apples, of fresh muscatel and just collected figs. In the mouth it clearly confirms the fragrances with the addition of the taste of bread crust. Persistent.
