The Nonino Monovitigno il Moscato is made with fresh and soft Moscato grape pomace, selected and destalked. It’s fermented in stainless steel tanks, distilled in copper steam stills, and rested for six to 12 months in stainless steel tanks. This is an elegant drink from Friuli, Italy, with an ABV of 41%. Soft and sensual, it exudes aromas of sage, vanilla, and rose. It’s easy to drink, elegant, with a spiced palate and a refreshing finish.
Grappa is usually served as a digestivo, or an after-dinner drink, in Italy. Serve it as a finisher to a meal, with cream cakes, ice cream, or drizzled over fresh fruits. It’s also great paired with dried fruit, and semi-sweet chocolate. Grappa can only be consumed in the morning, added to espresso as a caffé cornetto.
Founded by Orazio Nonino in in 1897, in Ronchi di Percoto, in the Friuli region of northeastern Italy, Nonino is a relatively small company, specializing in the production of grappa. The years have been good to Nonino, and the company is now on its fourth generation of family leadership.
Benito Nonino (Orazio’s great-grandson) and his wife, Gianola, were unsatisfied with only producing grappa the way it always was. In the early 70s, they set out to change their method of production, making grappa the best it could possibly be. Their revolutionary result came out in 1973, and was a single varietal grappa they called Grappa Monovitigno Nonino. This husband-and-wife powerhouse is responsible for the countless achievements, awards, and popularity that Nonino was since garnered.
They have three daughters—Cristina, Antonella, and Elisabetta, who have long been with their parents in their pursuit for grappa excellence. They are now heading much of the production, working alongside their family to keep Nonino on its star position on the map.
Store Grappa upright, in an area away from direct sunlight and heat. Make sure it’s tightly closed once opened. You may refrigerate, as Grappa is usually served chilled. It will last indefinitely, but if aroma, appearance, and taste become different and strange, discard.
