Varnelli Amaro Sibilla 100ml
Artisan amaro from Macerata, Marche
Since 1868 Amaro Sibilla has been made from a decoction of herbs, roots and barks gathered from the Sibillini Mountains which get brewed over a wood fire and sweetened with honey. A long ageing and decanting period is then needed in order to obtain a transparent smooth-tasting product, moderately bitter and with the right alcoholic strength.
Strong aromas of bitter herbs and dried fruit (chestnuts, walnut husk), followed by scents of coffee and honey. The first impression of sweetness due to honey is then followed by an intense bitter tannic taste with a long-length finish. This roughness is corrected by fine aromas of chestnuts, honey, dried fruit, vanilla and coffee.
