The cherries are cultivates in our orchards of Alba, Langhe e Roero
They are harvested by hand several times in the season to respect the natural maturation and to allow us to have aproduct at the right point of maturation. We obtain a raw material naturally sweet and with excellent quality; we work them a few hours after collection.
Within 24 hours of collection the cherries are worked by adding natural syrup made from a delicate Moscato Grappa which is obtained by a slow distillation of grape of Moscato d’Asti. The result is a product preserved with the same characteristics associated with freshness but with unique organoleptic properties and the particular flavor of grappa, and enhances the cherry flavored..
It is a preserved fruit and evergreen classic that reminds us of the one prepared for us by our grandmothers.
They are great to taste the natural, simply opening the jar, or make delicious desserts, and ice cream.
The syrup is good to drink natural but is enhanced in the preparation of fine cocktails!.
…It ‘great to be enjoyed on winter evenings in front of a fireplace, perhaps drinking a glass of brandy….
