Villa Zarri 10 Year Old Italian Brandy (750ml)

SKU #1207272 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.  (6/2006)

K&L Notes

One of our Italian wine suppliers just recently introduced us 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 in an alembic pot still by Guido Zarri from Trebbiano (the Italian version of Ugni Blanc) and aged in French Limousin oak. This is the Dudognon Reserve Cognac of Italy; a Cognac-style brandy with ten years of age, and nothing standing in the way of the pure, unadulterated flavor. It's a burst of soft stonefruit with just enough vanilla to balance it out from the Limousin oak maturation. It's basically a delicious and value-oriented version of top-notch Cognac, distilled with extreme precision and care by Guido Zarri.

Additional Information:





- 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.
