Overview

Grappa is the most ancient and traditional distillate of Northern Italy, obtained by distilling the solid parts of grape pomace. Monovitigno means one varietal. This grappa is made with pomace of 100% Chardonnay grapes, carefully selected and distilled. Distillation is discontinuous with both head and tail cut off, performed in steam stills created by Nonino. Distillation is slow to allow evaporation and condensation of the volatile components which are responsible for the olfactory characteristics of the grappa. It spends a year in small French barrels prior to bottling.

The Magazine of La Cucina Italiana - Fabiano Guatteri

The Chardonnay grappa has an amber color from the wood; and has a warm aroma of bread and vanilla and a smooth taste with hints of fresh almond.
