Traminer Cru

Traminer Cru Grapes Cà Viola – Friuli, harvested fresh and perfectly ripe. Very limited, dated and numbered production.

ÙE® Traminer Grape Spirit Cru Monovitigno® is obtained by distilling grapes selected according to the uniqueness of the vine and the area of production or Cru. 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 Spirit ÙE® by distilling the skin, pulp and grape juice in a single operation. Ministerial Authorization for the production of Grape Spirit (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.

100% Distilled with artisanal method

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.


Delicate and aromatic with a perfume of roses,evoking scents of Muscat, blackcurrant leaves, grape jam being cooked on the stove and ‘passito’ wine from Pantelleria.  It should be served at about 12° in an iced open tulip shaped glass. Before tasting, ÙE® Cru Monovitigno® Traminer should rest in the glass for some minutes: taking oxygen the fragrances are exalted and the nose-palate harmony is completed.
