Varnelli Amaro Sibilla (1L)

SKU #1074521 Wine Enthusiast

 Sweetened with honey from the Sibillini Mountains, this deep-brown amaro is rich, with touches of baked fruit, honey, nuts and dark chocolate. However, a bitter streak plows right through any sweetness on the palate, leaving bountiful herbal and spicy-hot notes in its wake. Use sparingly to add aromatics to cocktails. (SK)  (4/2014)

K&L Notes

An amazing new amaro from Italy's Varnelli family, a producer from the Marche region that has been distilling since 1868. This is quite bitter, made with gentian root, it's herbal with soft hints of chocolate and a very supple mouthfeel. Definitely not for everyone, but wow is it interesting. For those who truly love the wonderful world of bitter liqueurs--you'll go bananas for this.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
