About Nonino Grappa I Vigneti Monovitigno Il Moscato
Established over a century ago in 1897 in Ronchi di Pavia in the Fruili region of Italy by Orazio Nonino, the Nonino Distillery is one of the leading grappa distilleries in the world. Once upon a time a typical poor man’s drink, the Nonino family revolutionized grappa and elevated it into a delicacy of the highest order. Introducing new methods of distillation, saving traditional grape varieties and inventing a new category of spirit – Ùe, the list of accomplishments of the Nonino Distillery is long, but the successful distillery is still family-owned today, run by Benito and Giannola Nonino with their three daughters who operate their five artisanal distilleries.
Grappa is a distilled spirit, made from fermenting and distilling the solid part of grapes called pomace. In 1973, the Nonino family invented the single varietal grappa, Monovitigno Nonino, by distilling the pomace of Picolit grapes.
Il Moscato di Nonino Grappa Vigneti Monovitigno is made from selected and destalked pomace that is harvested fresh and soft from Moscato grapes, used in sweet and sparkling Italian wines. Distillation takes place immediately after fermentation in copper steam stills without heads and tails – the result of Benito Nonino's innovation to preserve the purest part of grappa, the heart. Bottled at 82 proof, this is an elegant, aromatic and sensual spirit that should be enjoyed at about 12°C or in an icy open tulip shaped glass.
