Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* Real Lambrusco is a rarity in this country, but here it is, purple hued, with just enough fizz to help cut through the fattiness of fine salume. It’s grapy and dry, with hints of anise and herbs that prevent it from being too simple." (12/2003) K&L Notes: Lambrusco is not part of the upper echelon of Italian wine. To begin with, it is not expensive. Also, it doesn't come from Tuscany or Piedmont or any of the well know wine-producing regions of Italy. It comes from Emilia-Romagna. And then there's the fact that it's red and sparking. Actually, foaming is c... Read More »
Old-vine, hillside vineyard Lambrusco = serious fun! This is a magnificent wine: dry, slightly fizzy with just a mess of purple froth. We are pretty confident it will be among the most exciting wines you've tried in a while! A perfect match for simple BBQ chicken and burgers or slices of Mortadella and Parmigiano. Some would even venture to suggest a batch of lasagna!
One of our Italian wine suppliers just recently introduced me to a producer who is going to be a huge new player for the spirits department: Villa Zarri—a distiller in Emilia Romagna with a stunning portfolio of traditional Italian spirits and impeccable aged brandies. The Cognac-style spirits are distilled on an alembic pot still by Guido Zarri from trebbiano (the Italian version of ugni blanc) and aged in French Limousin oak. Just a stunning deal in the modern world of high-end mature spirits. The 1988 vintage brandy from Guido Zarri is a burst of eleg... Read More »

Oblio is a blend of Lambrusco Salamino, Lambrusco Maestri and Ancellotto. This is not as dry as their Terra Calda and not as sweet as their Lambruco Dolce. Dense and full-bodied, it possesses just a hint a sweetness, reminiscent of strawberries and wild flowers, with a dry, dusty finish. This Rosso Frizzante is a must-serve for your holiday parties.

This Amaro is a product of the Zarri family tradition, and follows a recipe that has been kept in the archives of the Villa Zarri cellars for half a century. This liqueur is made with cold alcohol infusions of 28 precious herbs and aromatic roots whose taste is bitter yet elegant. These include quassia, rhubarb, wormwood, Colombo, liquorice, mint, myrtle-leafed bitter orange, gentian, bitter and sweet orange peel, and a covert many others. The extract obtained is then left to stand for several months in a steel container until it reaches the 35 percent a... Read More »
Truly hand-made walnut liqueur made in accordance with the age-old traditions of the Emilia-Romagna Region. Enjoy after a meal with cookies or spicy desserts, and feel free to add a cube of ice on warmer evenings! The producer's note: "Villa Zarri Nocino liqueur is produced according to an old family recipe and its processing is completely carried out manually. The husks used are from organically grown walnuts which are gathered, in compliance with traditions, on 24th June, that is Saint John’s Day, when they have become ripe, but their woody shell has n...

A barrel-aged cherry brandy from the premier distiller of fruit in all of Italy, Villa Zarri!
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "An extra aged Trebbiano brandy. Opening scents are of tobacco leaf, walnut butter and oak; later sniffings find new aromas of ginger, cinnamon, and pipe tobacco. Palate entry is oily, buttery and semisweet; at midpalate the taste stays the course of oil/butter, adding delicious notes of vanilla and an early-budding rancio/blue cheese quality. Finishes classy, spirity warm, woody and elegant."
