30% ABV, 750 ml
This is the second product Luxardo created. Produced entirely from Luxardo cherry juice, it rests in oak for nine months to undergo a natural fermentation into a "cherry wine." It is then fortified, sweetened and bottled. Italian poet/patriot Gabriele d'Annunzio christened this liqueur "Sangue Morlacco" (Morlacco Blood) in honor of the Morlaccos, the fierce warriors of Dalmatia who fought for the Republic of Venice and defended their homeland against the Turks. Certified Kosher.
TASTING NOTES: Good body, very rounded on the palate.Quite different from normal cherry-brandies, both through the intensity of the cherry's typical taste (here decidedly enhanced), and through the surprising expansion of the after-taste, which makes it priceless when combined with pure chocolate.
