- The unique aroma of our Chinotto comes from the west side of the Liguria Riviera where, since 1500, Chinotto trees have grown. At Savona today, there is the Slow Food Presidium to protect the precious citrus fruits that give our drink the typical amber taste that gives off an intense scent.
- An intense and vivid color with tones of caramelized Afghan amber. A scent of citrus and spices. The carbon dioxide emphasizes the delicacy and harmony of a particularly complex bouquet: citrus, herbs, spices and bitter caramel. The taste is velvety and soft with a noble and harmonious body, without excessive sweetness.
- Drunk on its own it is an excellent thirst-quencher particularly suitable as an aperitif to accompany savory appetizers or with a full meal of rich tasting dishes. Excellent as an ingredient in cocktails in which a bold exotic taste is desired. To be served in a glass tumbler, with no added ice or lemon.
Details: The myrtle-leaf orange tree, or chinotto, is a Slow Food Presidia-cultivated fruit that grows in Savona, a province along the Ligurian Riviera. Combined with Lurisia’s mineral water, the sparkling soda is slightly more bitter than an orange with a tartness resembling a lime. Excellent on its own or in a cocktail, the soda pairs well with savory appetizers for an aperitivo or bold secondi for an elegant accompaniment.
