Nonino Grappa: An Icon of Italian Excellence
Nonino Grappa is synonymous with refinement and tradition, a true symbol of Italian excellence in the world of spirits. Founded in 1897 by Orazio Nonino in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of north-eastern Italy, the Nonino family has been able to transform a rustic and popular drink into a luxurious and sophisticated product, loved by connoisseurs and novices alike.
The success of Nonino Grappa is based on the Nonino family's passion and commitment to preserving and perfecting ancient distillation techniques. With five generations of master distillers behind them, the family has made quality and innovation its trademark.
One of the secrets of Nonino Grappa's success is the exclusive use of fresh and selected pomace, harvested and processed within a few hours of vinification to guarantee maximum quality and freshness. The company uses only autochthonous pomace the Friuli region, resulting in distillates that express the territory and its winemaking traditions.
Another distinctive element is the bain-marie distillation in copper stills, a traditional method that allows obtaining soft and aromatic grappas, with a great olfactory complexity. The Nonino family was the first to introduce the discontinuous bain-marie still in Italy, revolutionising the grappa sector.
Nonino grappas are distinguished by their elegance and finesse, thanks also to the ageing in oak barriques, which gives them depth and roundness. The company's portfolio is wide and varied, ranging the traditional Grappa Monovitigno to the most refined and precious Riserve, passing through Grappa d'Uva Cru and the famous Aquaviti d'Uva.
Among the flagship products of Nonino Grappa stands out the Grappa Picolit, a monovarietal grappa obtained the pomace of the homonymous autochthonous vine, awarded with numerous international prizes and considered one of the best grappas in the world. Another jewel of the house is Amaro Nonino Quintessentia, a bitter liqueur obtained an infusion of herbs, roots and spices, which combines Friulian tradition with the family's craftsmanship.
Nonino Grappa is a testimony of Italian excellence, a product that encapsulates the passion, history and know-how of a family dedicated to the creation of top quality distillates.
