(55º) Amaro, Italian for bitter, is an herbal liqueur produced by macerating dried herbs, roots, flowers, bark and citrus peels in alcohol and then blending it with a mixture of sugar, alcohol and caramel. An ideal after dinner drink that can also be served mixed in cocktails.
Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Deep purple-brown in the glass, the aroma mixes jammy cherry and raspberry with eucalyptus. The palate walks the line between lightly sweet and lightly bitter, mingling herbaceous root beer notes with faint but refreshing mint and a mildly bitter edge. Recommended as a digestif or for cocktail mixing (i.e. Negroni-style drinks).
A skilled preparation of an ancient recipe based on rare herbs and roots with an unmistakable flavor and excellent digestive.
