Intense aromas of walnuts, warm, spicy notes of cinnamon and cloves with a hint of balsamic and vegetal aromas of the walnut tree bark. The palate is rich and intense with a taste of macerated walnut, perfectly balanced with oriental spices and sweet toasted notes. Highly complex on the finish.

Nocino is a delightful liqueur made from green walnuts. The walnuts are picked when they are still soft and green, this happens according to tradition on the 24th June, the night of San Giovanni (Saint John the Baptist) when the walnuts have not yet formed their shells. They are from here then macerated for 9 months.
