Nonino Gioiello Chestnut Honey Distillate 750 ml 37% alc
PRIMARY PRODUCT: Chestnut Honey
ARTISANAL DISTILLATION: Discontinuous with head and tail cutting, in copper steam stills.
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 37% vol.
TASTING: 10°C or served in an iced glass with an open tulip shape.
TASTE SENTATION: Individual, with a scent of spices. It perfectly corresponds to the original honey, but with a greater elegance. Typical, before tasting, Gioiello should be allowed to rest in the glass for some minutes: on exposure to oxygen, the perfumes are enhanced and the nose/palate harmony is perfected.
The perfect marriage for this distillate is with pecorino cheese which is about five months old and chestnut honey. It goes particularly well with those cheeses which have great personalities, with foie gras, with dry desserts and with all desserts based on honey or ice-cream. To enhance its perfume, it can be added to sauces to accompany game, white meats and fish.
