Laid up in Slovanian oak barrels for a minimum of three years, Nardini Riserva enjoys a delicate sophistication that has made it hugely popular all over the world. The subtle wood ageing imbues a degree of sweetness and softness to this grappa on the palate, while delivering a delightful warmth in the swallow. 'Riserva' scooped a 'Best-in-Class' award in the 2006 International Wine & Spirit Competition.
Nardini Riserva was tasted at Meeting No. 18 on November 21, 2013. Out of 5, we rated it very highly at 3.90. Nardini Riserva is the top rated Other that we've tried. Costing $92, this spirit is on the pricier side, but well worth the money.

Smells soggy in the glass, fresh and floral on the back of the hand. This spirits takes you for a journey from the moment it hits your tongue. Flavor after flavor explodes and then recedes to yield room for the next. Impressive complexity.

Nose - alluring and rough, Robitussin. Taste - wonderfully complex series of flavors, layer upon layer with a constant underlying sweetness; chocolate, honey, creamy lemon, honeydew.

Nose is a little stinky. Sweetness is brief, then it opens up with a kaleidoscope of anise, juniper, orange and vanilla.
