Nardini's Reserva is a grappa that is aged for five years in Slavonian oak barrels. This softens the grappa and slightly sweetens it, due to the natural sugars in the wood. This has notes of apples and honey and is considered by many to be reminiscent of a lowland malt in style.
A half bottle of Nardini's 15 year old Grappa Riserva. This was launched in 2004 for the 225th anniversary of Nardini's foundation. Aged for in Slovonian oak, it is complex and intense, yet soft. Nardini suggest this is a great post-prandial grappa which combines extremely well with strong dark cigars.
