Clementi China Antico Amaro Liqueur 750ml

SKU #1326040

The famous bitter liqueur of Tuscany is finally available in the US. Using two types of cinchona bark and a host of other aromatic herbs and spices, the recipe dates back to 1884, when the Doctor Joseph Clementi created the special elixir to sooth the stomachs of his patients. It may have also afforded the local population with a nice prophylactic for the endemic malaria scourge. Nonetheless, the resulting bitter liqueur which falls somewhere between a Bitter of Turin and a traditional southern Italian amaro in flavor is one of the most exciting new products on the shelf. Wildly complex and satisfying, this "elixir" mingles the characteristic bite of cinchona with sweet lemony citrus oils, bright red fruit and dark fragrant herbs. A truly magical addition to our selection of bitter liqueurs.

- 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.
