Quintessentia + Quintessentia Riserva // Set of 2 // 700 ml Each
The origins of Amaro trace back to ancient Italy where influences from Roman, Arabian, Celtic, Venetian, and Slavic culture came together to create a complex Italian liqueur fortified with botanicals from around the world. Originally used as a medicinal remedy, its popularity and use in artisan cocktails has grown exponentially.
Amaro Nonino Quintessentia® is the result of a union between Master Distiller Antonio Nonino’s ancient recipe and the Nonino family’s experience in the art of distillation. In 1933, Antonio took the generational distillation knowledge passed down to him to create Amaro Carnia—a grappa-based spirit infused with wild herbs from the Friulian mountains. His wife further improved on the recipe by adding botanicals from distant lands in a nod to the many cultures that had enriched the Friuli region. In 1992, the Nonino family replaced the grappa with ÙE® Grape Distillate aged in barriques of Nevers, Limousin and ex-Sherry small casks. This base is then blended with mountain herbs and spices from Antonio Nonino’s ancient original recipe and aged in oak barrels to produce a delicate and complex Italian liqueur. Artisanal batch distillation and small production keeps the level of quality and care very high.

Quintessentia Riserva is a special bottling that takes the classic Amaro Nonino Quintessentia of herbs, spices, fruit, berries, and roots, enriched with aged Nonino Grape Distillate, aged more than 24 months in oak barriques and small casks. With great softness, the citrus notes are lessened and it gains great elegance and oak-influenced subtlety. At the beginning there is autumnal brushwood and moss fragrances that leave way to scents of raisins and passito. You'll find rich balsamic flavors that balance the bitter notes of rhubarb, flamed orange and caramelized vanilla, with great persistence and intensity.
