Good news: You've got impeccable taste in liquor. The not-as-good news? It means it's currently out of stock. Add this bad boy to your wish list and we'll let you know if it comes our way.
When Moscato grapes are ripening on the vine in Northern Italy, each evening they pray that they will be pressed into this Grappa from the Familia Nonino. 
 
The Nonino family have been instrumenta … no, they have been indispensable to the growth, development, and prosperity of GrappaThe Nonino Distillery was established in 1897 by patriarch Orazio Nonino in the Friuli region of Italy. They’re responsible for some of the most important innovations in the Grappa industry, almost single-handedly revolutionizing a once poor-man's leftovers into a delicacy of the highest order. And—even rarer today—this producer is still family owned and operated. 
 
Truly, their list of accomplishments over more than 110 years are too many to list here, but they include novel methods of distillation, the salvation of several traditional grape varieties that had actually become banned, and the invention of an entire new category of distilled spirit, branded as Ùe (pronounced “Oo-ay”). Today their five artisanal distilleries are run by Benito and Giannola Nonino with their three daughters and they produce a wide variety of Grappa, Wine, and related specialty beverages, including another new product to the world—artisanal distilled honeys. 
 
Most great food inventions do not begin in the halls of the rich or at the hands of trained professional. Most come out of desire and necessity in the hands of the lower classes, scraping by to make the most of what is at hand. Grappa is one of these. It is made from the fermented and distilled left-overs after the wine has been pressed—skins, seeds, even the stems. The Nonino Familia has transformed this poor-man’s Brandy into an art form.
 
Nonino Grappa I Vigneti Monovitigno Il Moscato is—as the incredibly long Italian name would suggest—a Grappa made from Moscato grapes of the kind used in the remarkably sweet, Italian Sparkling Wines. That, and the fact that this luscious beverage comes from the greatest name in Grappa, should tell you everything that you need to know. 
 
Nonino Grappa I Vigneti Monovitigno Il Moscato is smooth and sweet … almost decadent. When Moscato grapes are ripening on the vine in Northern Italy, each evening they pray that they will one day be pressed into this Grappa from the Familia Nonino. There are a bajillion awesome cocktails that you can make with this amazing Grappa, but we say serve it neat, properly chilled, with anything creamy … from an Alfredo sauce main course to a berry and creme-fresh dessert.

Italians add Grappa to espresso coffee to create a caffè corretto, meaning "corrected coffee". Incredibile.

Superb! On par with my Orvietto Grappa. Delicate, easily drinkable with a smidgeon of sweetness.
