Nonino Amaro Quintessentia
|Region||Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia|
Extraordinary fragrance of mountain herbs, ennobled by UE - Nonino grapes distillate aged in barriques. Drink as a delicious aperitif served with ice and a slice of orange with its peel or as a digestive to complete a meal.
The Amaro Nonino Manhattan: 2 oz. rye or bourbon; 3/4 oz. Amaro Nonino; 2 dashes of bitters; Stir well and strain into a cocktail glass with or without ice. Add a cherry!
Tawny and bright in the glass, this mellow, bittersweet beauty offers caramel and vanilla, braced by allspice and bitter orange. Although Nonino is best known for its grappas, this amaro, flavored with herbs from the mountains of Friuli, is worth seeking out. Consider it for dessert pairings or an edgy spin on a negroni.
