Grappa

AnticaCuvée® Riserva Cask Strength


DIRECTLY FROM THE CASK
Blend of Grappas from fresh pomace. Aged from 5 to 20 years in barriques and small casks.
Inimitable Grappa. Limited and numbered production.

Natural ageing in barriques and small casks in the Nonino cellars, under seal and permanent surveillance by the Customs and Monopoly Agency. Bottled without color additives.

Ageing is carried out through the rest of Grappa in wood, which modifies its sensorial profile both by the action of the oxygen that reaches the distillate through the porosity of the wood itself, and through the impact of the substances that the wood slowly releases to the product, enriching it.

100% Distilled with artisanal method


Batch method in exclusive copper steam stills, the result of Benito Nonino’s innovation and continuous research, which with the elimination of heads and tails allows the selection of the purest part of Grappa: the heart. @ 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.

Olfactory sensation – Wide and intense with a scent of strudel, pastry, cherries and chocolate.
Taste sensation – Rich and velvety, in the mouth it confirms its aromatic shades with the addition of apricot, vanilla and almond fruity notes. Always charming.

Taste it adding some water drops to enhance its flavor.
