Vecchia Romagna

Italy's most popular brandy

Founded in 1820 by Jean Bouton (a native of the Charente, France—the home of cognac) using Trebbiana grapes, Vecchia Romagna is made in San Lazzaro-Ozzano Emilia (Italy's 'brandy city') and sold in its distinctive rounded triangular bottles. It's excellent in a caffè corretto.

It comes in four versions: Classica, the smoother Etichetta Nera, the blue label Vecchia Romagna Riserva (aged 10 years) and Vecchia Romagna Riserva d'Oro (aged 15 years).
