Cod. AMA0005P
Formidabile is a natural bitter liqueur handmade through a process of maceration of aromatic and officinal plants in pure grain alcohol.

Is produced through cold maceration in grain alcohol of various botanicals without the aid of additives, coloring, caramel or any type of synthetic or natural flavor.

The complex bouquet of Amaro Formidabile arises from the combination of herbs, flowers, barks, roots and fruit peels with concentration percentages that are much higher than what is suggested in the literature on the subject. Cinchona, Chinese Rhubarb, Damask rose, Roman Wormwood, Gentian, Bitter Orange Peel, Burdock, Cola Nut, Star Anise and Milk Thistle are just some of the botanicals.

Amaro Formidabile is the only amarowith the vintage statement on the label.

Tasting notes
Colour: The colour is amber and the choice of the ultra clear glass bottle offers the sight a precious transparency.

Aroma: immediately seems three-dimensional, not attributable to a single sensation: it's citrusy, slightly smoky, particular, of coconutine and roasted cocoa beans.

Consistency: silky, embracing, warm, almost chewable.

Taste: incredibly polyphonic in the mouth: the sensations evolve almost simultaneously, although they keep their individual characteristics.The top note is aromatic, with a taste of the peel of the three types of citrus and of aniseed joined by a spicy, herbaceous and warm heart of carnation and coriander, mugwort and muscat rose. The base is toasted, woody, oriental, evocative of super concentrated botanicals. You get the curious sensation of recognizing elements that are totally absent such as licorice, bitter almond or coffee bean covered with dark chocolate.

Finish: very long and deep: the incensed and bitter notes are unforgettable in a persistent memory of rhubarb candy. With a long after taste that lasts several minutes and leaves a clean and smooth mouth feel.
