On Nardini’s bottles you find the word Aquavite ( latin spelling) , not grappa, because the original name for grappa was acquavita, or “water of life”, used to cure ailments of all types including the black plague.
Acquavite Nardini Bianca is the queen of the product line , and the most loved among Italians because its clean dry taste and floral bouquet. Perfect as an after dinner drink, it is best served at 18° C , can be used a san ingredient for many cocktails. Frank, generous and immediate fragrance.
Acquavite Nardini Riserva is aged for a minimum of 5 years on oak barrels from Slavonia and is smooth and soft on the palate. All Nardini’s grappa is 50% alcohol, as tradition dictates.
Soft but intense. In the aftertaste you can detect the complex degrees of flavor created by the long aging process in Slavonian oak barrels.
