ÙE® l'Acquavite d'Uva


Cabernet Franc Cru


 
ÙE® Grape Distillate Cru Monovitigno® is obtained by distilling grapes selected according to the uniqueness of the vine and the area of production or Cru.
The Grape Distillate combines within it the elegance of wine distillate and the character of the Grappa. ÙE / Grapes in the language of Friuli
27th November 1984: Benito and Giannola Nonino created the Grape Distillate ÙE® by distilling the skin, pulp and grape juice in a single operation. Ministerial Authorization for the production of Grape Distillate (D.M. 20.10.84) was granted following a specific request by the Noninos.
The success of this distillate over the years has been such that it has persuaded Italian and foreign distillers to follow the Nonino model.
