Tasting Notes

A clear notch above the competition this very impressive bittersweet aperitivo sets itself apart from the pack with aromas that don't hold back and perk up your senses while the palate is textured and soft with a gentle bittersweet finish that hangs on like the perfect ending to a real tear jerker. Makes great, simple refreshing aperitif cocktails, long drinks with soda water and ice as well as numerous cocktail possibilities.
