Grappas from Brunello di Montalcino by Nannoni Distillery
Piero Valdiserra - December 9, 2006
In the past, Tuscany did not pay too much attention to distilled spirits, until Maestro Distillatore (Distillery Master), Gioacchino Nannoni brought honors the grappa di fattoria (farmhouse grappa). Aware of the aromatic potential, as well as the organoleptic characteristics of the Tuscan marc, especially the Sangiovese solid leftovers form Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti production, Nannoni created a product which retains the specific perfume and flavor of each type of vine.
Thanks to his knowledge of the art of distillation, as well as the know-how applied to the construction of the distillery itself, Gioacchino Nannoni was able to produce spirits, and a brand, which are currently known and appreciated worldwide.
The Distilleria Nannoni is located in the small town of Aratrice, in the verdant heart of the Tuscan countryside, not far from the cities of Grosseto and Siena. Among his most celebrated products are two Grappa di Brunello Riserva: the Oro dei Carati (Gold of the Carats), and Da Sigaro Toscano (From Tuscan Cigar).
