Deep amber, shiny glints. Intense, complex from the blend of different extractions and refining, with sharp spicy and artemisia shades. Full, the sweetness is well balanced by the bitter hint found in the long finish. Aftertaste is spicy and aromatic.
This distinguished expression of traditional Piemonte flavors is a wine-based Amaro, a predecessor to the now more common styles of Amari. It is prepared by an infusion of Cardoon, Blessed Thistle, and other botanicals in the estate wine of Bosca, then rested on new oak for at least six months. The recipe originated with the founder of this now 7th generation winemaking family. Appreciation of Cardoon and Blessed Thistle dates back to antiquity and today they remain popular in Piemontese regional cuisine.
