Amaro Nonino Quintessentia
Amaro Nonino Quintessentia is a digestif amaro made in Fruili, in northern Italy. It is grappa based and infused with a blend of many herbs, spices, and roots, including gentian, saffron, licorice, rhubarb, sweet and bitter orange, tamarind, quassia bark, chinchona bark, and galenga, among other things. It is a light reddish-brown color and 70 proof. Nonino is a bit less sweet, less bitter, and lighter in texture than other Amari. It is aged for five years in oak barrels.
