Grappa Riserva 15 yr
This particular Riserva, aged fifteen years in Slavonian oak barrels, was bottled as a celebration of the 225th anniversary of Nardini Distillery. It is made from the pomace of Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot and Friulano grapes that are harvested in the alpine foothills of the Friuli region.
It is golden colored with amber reflections. The nose is fragrant, bold and persistent, with hints of wood and resin. On the palate this grappa is soft but intense. Complex flavors obtained by the incredibly long aging period show through on the aftertaste.

- Production Process
The grape pomace is collected within 24 hours of the winemaking process and it gets stored and sealed in underground vats during the period of time between September and October. The distillation process starts in October and lasts 24 hours a dayuntil May. This basic grappa used for the Riserva 15 Anni version is made in a discontinuous, vacuum-packed steam still. The grappa is thereafter transferred to the post-modern plant in Bassano del Grappa where it is brought to its final stage (alcoholic reduction to 50% and cold filtration) and bottled.
Aged for 15 years in Slavonian oak barrels.
