Since 1868 Amaro Sibilla has been obtained from a decoction of herbs, roots and barks prepared over a wood fire and sweetened with honey. A long ageing and decanting period is then needed in order to get a transparent smooth tasting product, moderately bitter and with the right alcoholic strength.
To the Eye
Dense, dark brown.
To the Nose
Strong aromas of bitter herbs and dried fruit (chestnuts, walnut husk), followed by scents of coffee and honey.
On the Palate
The first impression of sweetness due to honey is then followed by an intense bitter tannic taste with a long-length finish. This roughness is corrected by fine aromas of chestnuts, honey, dried fruit, vanilla and coffee.
