PRODUCER: Nonino. Distillery founded in 1897 by Orazio Nonino in the town of Ronchi de Percoto, near the city of Udine, in northeastern Italy. In 1928 the distillery was transferred to the town of Percoto, where it is still present today. In 1973 it became known worldwide for creating a monovarietal grappa, which they called Monovitigno Nonino, revolutionizing the traditional production methods of this liquor.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: Nonino Friulana is made from del pomace of the Picolit grape variety, harvested in the Friuli region. The pure and destemmed pomace is taken to the distillery once it is obtained in the racking, and is subjected to an alcoholic fermentation process in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. It is then distilled in discontinuous steam stills, following the tradition of the Nonino family. Finally, it is left to mature between 6 months and a year in stainless steel tanks so that it acquires that complex character that characterizes it.
ALCOHOL DEGREE: 43%
