Villa Zarri Nocino Liqueur
An ancient tradition in the territory of the Emilia-Romagna Region, 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.
