Ammalia - Acquavite del Cardinale

Ammalia is a unique spirit due to its preciousness and authenticity, because the quality products employed enriches it with balance and aromatic complexity. Ammalia is colouring-free, its alcohol content is 40%: sipping it slowly is both an intense pleasure to the palate and an unforgettable sensation.
The colour is clear and bright and the smell is strong: the almond scent of the sour-cherry stone stands out, enriched with ripen black cherries aromas. The taste is smooth and enveloping, with a dry aftertaste that better enhances the sour-cherry scent, and a long-lasting taste persists to the palate.

Ammalia should be served in small smooth glasses in order to cherish its brightness. It can be paired both to dark and milk chocolate; however, its best employment is as meditative spirit.

“…and distilleth yet within my heart the sweetness born of it”

Dante Alighieri – XXXIII Paradiso – The Divine Comedy
