Grappa

Riserva 8 Years


A precious and elegant blend Grappas Monovitigno® Merlot, Schioppettino and Malvasia. Aged 8 years in barriques and in small casks. 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.

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.
