The Sirene Americano Rosso is a natural red aperitif that is produced in small batches by blending wines from the Lake Garda region with single botanical macerations. The natural color is extracted from hibiscus and monarda flowers. There are no artificial colors or flavorings. Gentian gives a bitter aroma that perfectly matches with rose, sweet orange and red pepper to create a unique floral taste. Enjoy the Sirene Americano on the rocks, in a spritz, or in a paloma with your favorite tequila or mezcal.
What is Americano? Americano is a category of aperitif wines, defined by EU law, which derive its bitter flavor from gentian. The term originates from the Italian word ‘amaricante,’ meaning bittered. Vermouth, quinquina, and americano are closely related. Production is generally similar between all three categories, but the bittering botanicals differ. While vermouth's defining botanical is wormwood, quinquina is flavored by cinchona bark, and americano must use gentian.
