Each botanical is chosen with utmost care, ensuring that only the finest ingredients find their way into this exquisite amaro. The harmonious blend includes the essence of sweet and bitter oranges, the vibrancy of tangerine, the soothing notes of chamomile, the earthy allure of juniper, the captivating presence of licorice and anise, the refreshing touch of mint, and the subtle complexity of hyssop. Harvested at their peak ripeness and maturity, these botanicals are immediately macerated, allowing the truest expression of each ingredient to be captured and preserved.
As you approach this enchanting amaro, the nose is greeted by alluring aromas of Mandarin orange peel, invigorating mint, enticing anise, and the warmth of cinnamon bark. These fragrant notes pave the way for a palate that embraces a symphony of flavors. Bitter orange dances harmoniously with the spice of clove, while licorice and spicy juniper add depth and complexity. Tangerine, chamomile, and allspice take their turn in the spotlight, leaving a remarkable and ever-shifting finish that lingers on the palate.
With its 35% ABV, this amaro embodies the spirit of Southern Italy. The 29 meticulously selected botanicals offer a true representation of the region's terroir, showcasing an array of local herbs, fruits, flowers, roots, and spices. Traditionally served chilled, this amaro offers a refreshing respite from the Calabrian heat. However, it can also be enjoyed at room temperature or used as a key ingredient in cocktails, allowing its botanical complexity to transform and evolve, revealing warm fruit notes with balanced acidity.
