Taste:Gentle Anise, fruity, with hints of wood undertone
Finish:Long with a slightly woody and lingering spice finish
"Zachlawi Fig Arak is our signature Gourmet Arak. This Golden Arak is softer in the anise flavor profile from the Classic Traditional. It has an aroma of star anise, fruity taste with hints of wood and a lingering spice finish. Exquisitely paired with rack of lamb, prime rib roast, silver tip pesto roast. Also traditionally served as an aperitif with mazza (hors d'oeuvres, i.e. empanadas, kibbe, and mini tamarind meat pizzas." - Producer Notes
|Vigneti Zanatta is located in the Gallura region of Sardinia, known for its granite rocks that are shaped by the wind, rain, and sea, where most of the land is relatively infertile and barren. Towards the north, however, there are extensive areas covered with vineyards. It was here, in 1973, that Bruno Zanatta, a young oenologist from Treviso, began his career, acquiring in-depth knowledge of the terrain and Sardinian soil. Thirty years later, his passion remains the same, but with his son Marco working alongside him, he now has what can be considered a true family-run enterprise, owning more than 247 acres of land. He purchased his first 40 acres in 2003 in a hilly area 984 ft. above sea level, where he planted the vine varieties Vermentino and Cannonau. In 2005 he again purchased land in the Gallura region, and more specifically in the municipality of Olbia. This time there were 222 acres to which he patiently devoted loving care year after year until more than 148 acres had been planted. It was here that he concentrated his real production of Vermentino di Gallura DOCG and Cannonau di Sardegna DOC. Finally in 2008, when the winery was built, it was possible to oversee the complete production cycle.
