Grappa Il Merlot

The result of distilling the pomace of select Merlot grapes, this grappa is clear, soft and round in texture, with bright ripe fruit notes. 

Founded in 1897 by Orazino Nonino in the Friuli region of Italy, Nonino changed the way the world views grappa. Benito Nonino, his wife Giannola, and their three daughters Cristina, Antonella, and Elisabetta, continue to lead Italian distillers through their devotion to research, quality and innovation. In 1984, Benito and Giannola solidified their status as industry leaders by introducing the world’s first single-vineyard, single-grape distillate produced using whole grape clusters. This product, known as ÚE (pronounced “Oo-ay”) further revolutionized the industry and introduced distillates with uniquely intense aroma and flavor components.

Today, Nonino’s extensive product line revolves around their award winning grappas and revolutionary ÚEs. Presented in elegant bottles most of which are hand blown – it is no wonder that Nonino grappas and UEs are some of the most sought-after distillates in the world today.

Nonino, always naturally ages in barriques and small casks under seal and permanent surveillance by the Customs and Monopoly Agency in the company cellars.

100% distilled with artisanal method.
