The name says it all: Aperol is the perfect aperitif. Bright orange in color, it has a unique taste, thanks to the secret recipe, which has never been changed, with infusions of selected ingredients including bitter and sweet oranges and many other herbs and roots in perfect proportions. Aperol's strength is in its low-alcohol content of only 11 percent.
Nose: Lightly alcoholic, zesting orange with appealing complex herbal scents harmonized with a touch of vanilla.
Body: Intense orange top with herbal and woody body notes, pleasantly bittersweet and salty.
Texture: Velvety and rounded, with long-lasting orange and wood memories.
Backtaste: Herbal long pleasant typical bitterness.
