Lucano Amaro (750ml)

SKU #1078781 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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). (KN) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

K&L Notes

This traditional Amaro from the far-flung Basilicata region is made in the most traditional manner. Using only natural botanicals and following a hundred-year-old family recipe, the secret ingredient that differentiates Lucano is a closely guarded family secret, but the recipe includes Roman absinthe, wormwood, Clary sage, musk yarrow, holy thistle, sweet orange, gentian, and aloe. Herb selection is the key to its incredible quality—no other Amaro tastes quite like Lucano. This one is to be savored, but it will spice up your cocktails as well.

The last time I ordered an Averna at the end of a meal, I sat considering its medicinal, bitter qualities, and lamenting its syrupy sweetness. The Lucano has the best of Averna's herbaceousness, with earthy, bitter citrus flavors and a light, balanced texture.
