ÙE® l’Acquavite d’Uva

La Malvasia

From Malvasia grapes. Fresh, crystalline, slightly aromatic.

I Vigneti Monovitigno® are differentiated from the Cru Monovitigno® by the fact that pomace comes from a single grape variety which is linked to more dedicated production zones and by the non hand-made bottling technique. The Grape Spirit 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 SpiritÙE® 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.

Batch method with the removal of the heads and the tails in special artisanal batch steam stills created by Benito Nonino for the distillation of grapes. The distillation happens very slowly to allow the volatile components, responsible for the perfumes, a proper evaporation period and subsequent condensation, in order to keep intact the precious organoleptic characteristics of the chosen vines varieties.
