Blood orange bitter, Amara – From Sicilian PGI blood oranges
Amara bitter stands out for its quality and authenticity, derived from the selection of the best peels of Sicilian PGI blood orange cultivated in the lands of the Rossa Sicily company, the purest water from the springs of Etna and the wild herbs from the same mountain. The production process is carefully monitored, from the cultivation phases, to the hand-picking, to the bottling of the pure red orange nectar. This environmentally friendly production method saves 30% of water compared to traditional methods thanks to the use of a drip irrigation system.
This bitter, amber-colored with coppery reflections, gives off intense aromas of candied orange peel, spicy notes of cinnamon, star anise and cloves, with darker hints of cinchona. The taste is unmistakable and characteristic, rich in the bitter note, it proceeds decisive, soft and round, with numerous citrus and spicy references consistent with the smell. The persistence of orange blossom is long and pleasant.
Rossa Sicily is a young company born from the entrepreneurial enthusiasm of two friends, Edoardo and Stefano, who wanted to pay homage to their native land by enhancing one of its most famous excellences worldwide: the red orange. With this mission, they created the Amara Bitter, today appreciated not only in Italy, but also internationally. The company is located on the slopes of Etna, an area famous for its fertility and traditionally dedicated to citrus cultivation. Here, thanks to the volcanic and mineral nature of the soil and the significant temperature excursions, high-quality Sicilian red oranges are produced, used for the production of the bitter. The bitter is produced by infusing the peels of these oranges in alcohol with wild herbs of the territory and sugar, without the addition of additives.
