Averna Amaro Siciliano (750ml)

SKU #1012397 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Opaque and inky brown, the restrained aroma hints at espresso. On the palate, it's a wash of espresso, hazelnut and cola, with a pleasantly fleeting sweetness followed by a long, herbal finish. (KN) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

K&L Notes

An hour or so has passed since your last spoonful of mashed yams, your concluding hunk of brioche stuffing, your final, fateful bite of tryptophan-laden turkey... yet you cannot pull yourself from the table. You are full, beyond full. Never fear, Averna is here! Leave it to the Sicilians to come up with the ultimate in stomach-soothing digestive, just the thing to get the blood flowing after an enormous meal. Averna was created in Sicily in 1868, at a time when a typically rich meal might include twelve types of pastry. Its bitterness is similar to Fernet Branca, but with hints of vanilla, rich fruit, and sweetness to round out the strongly herbal, medicinal flavors. This is as necessary as pumpkin and pecan pie during the holiday season, but a lot easier on your stomach! 94 points Beverage Testing Institute: "Brown black color. Aromas and flavors of rosemary, black tea, chicory, cacao nibs, cedar, anise, and menthol with a glycerous, lively, very sweet medium-to-full body and a graceful, layered, long finish with suggestions of black coffee, chocolate-covered caramel, charred nuts, and cinnamon Danish finish. A rock solid bitter liqueur with bold aromas and a silky smooth, balanced palate." *Gold Medal* (10/2019)
