Characteristics of Grappa Nonino Il Merlot
Grappa is the oldest and most traditional spirit in the North of Italy and is obtained by distilling the solid part of the grape: the marc. On the 1st of December 1973, Benito and Giannola Nonino created the first single varietal Grappa, Monovitigno Nonino, by distilling the marcs of Picolit grapes, thus revolutionizing grappa's production method, promotion and bottling, not just in Italy but around the world. This spirit has been so successful over the years that other Italian and foreign distilleries follow Nonino's model.
Grappa Nonino Il Merlot is made from the marc of Merlot grapes, collected when it is soft and fresh. It ferments in stainless steel tanks under vacuum at a controlled temperature. It is distilled in traditional steam stills and aged for six months to a year in stainless steel tanks.
