Micio ... I had been following your thread on making nocino earlier this year and started a batch from walnits collected in June
The original flavor was VERY tannic or bitter in nature and has currently subsided but still has quite a rough edge as we approach christmas and time for it to be ready (6 months)...
From other sources I see to make it and at the first christmas filter it ant then wait to the next christmas to serve it (18 months) ...
will this tannic/bitter flavor subside in the next year ... it currently has a very beautiful herbal aroma and flavor but the rough edge is still enough to keep from totally enjoying it
do you have any comments on this???

really I don't know the exact meaning of the word "nocino"; in my
opinion means "liqueur extract by walnuts", but also your
interpretation is proper and can be true.
in my opinion it's better to avoid to put sugar inside the jar
during fermentation, but this's matter of opinion.
what I can't accept is to wait 1 year or more to taste my delicious
nocino: no, it's too much!
