Nonino Grappa Monovitigno Cru Picolit The Legendary

375ML Half Bottle      
Sku: 213102

Primary product Picolit grape pomace is selected from the Nonino Vineyard in Friuli. Picolit is a very rare, typical varietal of Friuli and has a proclivity to shatter. Fermentation In stainless steel tanks under vacuum and in a controlled temperature environment. This is followed immediately by distillation in order to avoid harmful secondary fermentations. Artisanal Distillation Batch method with the removal of the heads and the tails in special artisanal batch steam stills renovated by Benito Nonino. 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. Production Limited and strictly dependent on the individual year’s harvest. Maturation From six months to a year in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting notes
Aristocratic elegant and pure; unique in its balance and elegance, its fragrance reminds the honeycomb full of honey, a clear scent of acacia flowers and ripe quince apples, of fresh muscatel and just collected figs. In the mouth it clearly confirms the fragrances with the addition of the taste of bread crust. Persistent.

 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 98 points (Apr 2016)
Melon, green grapes, minerals and moonflower all come to mind when nosing this pristinely clear spirit. Honeydew and white pepper play on the tongue, with orange blossom quickly following on the medium grained suede texture.
