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.

Sensations


Slightly amber color for the ageing in wood. Elegant, sweet, soft and delicate.
It should be served at room temperature in a wide balloon type glass. Before tasting, Grappa should rest in the glass for some minutes: taking oxygen the fragrances are exalted and the nose-palate harmony is completed.

Combinations


Try it coupled with cheese, foie gras, chocolate, dry or cocoa based sweets; perfect if accompanied with a good cigar and to be savored with friends.
