Since 1868 Amaro Sibilla has been obtained from a decoction of herbs, roots, and barks prepared over a wood fire and sweetened with honey. A long aging and decanting period is then needed in order to get a smooth tasting and complex amaro, which is rightly bitter and balanced in alcohol.
Aromas: Intense aromas of bitter herbs and dried fruit (chestnuts, walnut husk), followed by scents of coffee and honey.
Flavors: The first impression of sweetness due to the honey is then followed by a rightly bitter and tannic taste with a long-length finish. This roughness is corrected by fine aromas of chestnuts, honey, dried fruit, vanilla and coffee.
Serving Suggestion: Amaro Sibilla is perfect after a meal served neat or on the rocks. Try drinking it hot with a lemon or orange peel. It is delicious in simple blends with soda, tonic water, chinotto or white vermouth.
