Villa Zarri 21 Year Old Italian Brandy (750ml)

SKU #1207273

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 Zarriā€”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 elegant fruit, rich oak, and full-bodied weight without the use of any coloring or sweetening agents like we see with many Cognacs. It tastes like a more fruit-forward version of the Dudognon Reserve Cognac, at a higher proof and with more panache. Considering the age and the provenance, the sub-$100 price point is almost too good to be true.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
