Anisette is a clear, licorice flavored liqueur with a rich, warming taste.
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Among the best of the its category, Meletti made its name experimenting with anise plants from numerous Italian provinces as far back as 1870, determining finally that the best quality anise grew on the Adriatic Coast directly east of Rome. The end result: a pungent aroma hinting at anise and fennel, and a mellow, sippable flavor that slowly unfurls fiery cinnamon, anise, Dutch licorice and a sweet-herbal hint of sarsaparilla.
The Meletti Anisette Liqueur has a primary character of black licorice, that penetrates the nose and the palate. It has been a classic Italian liqueur since 1870 and has a sweet anise finish.
|This wine is a delightful enhancement to espresso or by itself as an after dinner drink. You may enjoy it straight up or on the rocks.
