ÚE

Created by Giannola and Benito Nonino on November 27, 1984 - UE is the product of fermenting and distilling whole grape clusters, resulting in a product of more vibrant aromas and a rich, complex taste profile. Select grapes are harvested at the peak of ripeness and immediately taken to the distellery where the stalks are removed. The grapes are then loaded into vacuum tanks where the addition of selected yeast starts the fermentation process at controlled temperatures. Distillation of UE uses the same traditional stills as Grappa, allowing the distiller to control and retain the quality of the aroma and taste profiles present in the original grape. For this reason, continuous or vacuum stills are not used during distillation, because the air and vacuum present in the closed system eliminates many scents.
