Tasting notes: "An infusion of the highest grade green walnuts, macerated with selected herbs and spices to create a full, rich, and seasonally appropriate bouquet. Nocino Liqueur is a traditional dram served in Modena Italy at the end of a meal or over ice cream."
Renato Vicario and Janette Wesley own and operate two organic farms, on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean: in his native Piedmont, and in her native South Carolina. The majority of ingredients used to create Vicario’s liqueurs are grown on their own farms. Steeped in regional, mythical, and historical traditions, Vicario Liqueurs are made with the same methods which have been employed for centuries. Minimal filtration and quality ingredients ensure that these delightful spirits are among the most expressive examples in the world.
"Dark, inky brown, with a savory, herbaceous scent. The flavor surprises with a spicy burst up front, with leads to cola, amaro-like bitterness, and a rounded, mouthwatering finish accented with vanilla, clove and allspice. There's a pronounced alcohol kick; seems ideal as a warming post-prandial sipper." 91 Points Wine Enthusiast, Top 100 Spirits of 2017
