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 not developed yet. At this point walnuts are cut into 4 slices by means of large scissors and then macerated in good-quality 95° alcohol with added cloves, cinnamon sticks, sugar and water. The infusion is macerated for approximately 60 days, and every day it is stirred manually by means of a wooden stick. At the end of the infusion period, Nocino rests for at least one year in a steel container, then is filtered and bottled."

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.
