Villa Zarri Cherry Brandy, 50cl
A desire to rediscover and newly promote a liqueur which boasts a glorious past in the Italian liqueur tradition prodded Villa Zarri into producing Cherry Brandy: Villa Zarri brandy, distilled wine aged in small French oak barrels for 6 years, is blended with precious cherries coming from Castello di Serravalle, a small town located on the hills of Bologna.
Extremely bright and transparent, it shows a ruby red colour with lively copper shades. Its scent is enveloping, full, ripe and warm fruits do not conceal a calibrated and stimulating spicy feeling. When it is smelled for a second time, its aromatic repertoire increases and an ethereal and vanilla-flavoured note hints at what will be tasted. When it is introduced into the mouth it is, indeed, sweet and seducing, its flavour combines ripe cherries with citron fruit freshness, only to return to sweet spices: first and foremost, pipe tobacco and caramel. The ending is pleasant, harmonic and underlines full and extremely refined olfactive-gustative consistency.Suggestions: our suggestion is to taste it at room temperature (18-20 degrees Celsius) at the end of a meal, either alone or along with dry cookies, desserts containing fruit jam or plain chocolate. In summer it is excellent cold, with some ice cubes. It is an excellent basis for cocktails and long drinks.
