Nocino della Cristina Napa Valley Walnut Liqueur (375ml)

SKU #1041330 90-95 points Wine Enthusiast

 The bouquet features intriguing scents of coffee bean, black walnut, chicory and a hint of quinine. The palate entry is molasses-like and walnutty; the midpalate features tastes of black walnut and buttery richness on top of the roasted coffee bean. Ends stately, concentrated, luxurious, and nuttily delicious.  (5/ 2007)

K&L Notes

Nocino is the traditional walnut liqueur made throughout Italy and Ticino (the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland). The base ingredients of Nocino have changed very little through the centuries. They include cut, unripe walnuts, alcohol (typically grappa or grain alcohol), sugar, and spices. It is the mix of spices that can vary widely from family-to-family and village-to-village that gives each Nocino its unique character. Nocino della Cristina is a unique digestivo that combines spices carefully selected from Asia, Africa, and the Americas with California brandy and hand-picked walnuts from the Napa Valley.
