Amaro and Liqueurs

Amaro Nonino Quintessentia® Riserva 24 months


A return to the origins, Antonio Nonino’s ancient recipe meets again the softness of aging in barriques and small casks.

Amaro Nonino Quintessentia Riserva

In memory of grandfather Antonio we celebrate the Return to the Origins with Amaro Nonino Quintessentia® by creating a RISERVA which boasts more than 24 months of natural ageing in oak barriques and small casks.
Antonio Nonino, third generation of the family of Distillers, used to keep Amaro Carnia in small wooden casks. Steel was prohibitive. The infusion in contact with wood evolved and was enriched with new notes and new aromas.
Although there is no clear regulation on the aging of liqueurs, in respect of the philosophy that has always accompanied us, aging takes place in a dedicated cellar, under seal and permanent surveillance by the Customs and Monopoly Office: the result is extraordinary!
Aging enhances the component of ÙE® Nonino aged Grape Distillate.
