Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto: A Symphony of Citrus and Spice

Aromatic, refreshing, and undeniably Italian, Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto is a unique liqueur that has taken the cocktail world by storm.  Here at The General Wine, we're delighted to offer this exquisite expression of bergamot and botanicals. But what exactly does Italicus taste like? Let's delve into a detailed exploration of its flavour profile and discover how to best enjoy it.

On the Nose:

The first impression of Italicus is a burst of bright citrus. The star of the show, bergamot, takes centre stage with its characteristically uplifting aroma. Bergamot is a citrus fruit native to Calabria, Italy, and its fragrance is often described as a delightful blend of lemon, orange, and a touch of floral sweetness. This initial citrus burst is complemented by subtle floral notes of lavender and rose. Hints of chamomile peek through, adding a touch of herbal complexity. The overall impression is one of freshness and vibrancy.

On the Palate:

The flavour profile of Italicus mirrors the enticing aromas. The initial wave is a refreshing explosion of citrus, with bergamot once again playing the leading role. The zesty citrus character is balanced by a touch of sweetness, reminiscent of honey. As the flavours develop, floral notes of rose and lavender come to the fore, adding a touch of elegance. The herbal influence of chamomile and gentian root emerges subtly, providing a pleasant complexity and a hint of bitterness that lingers on the finish. The bitterness is not overpowering but rather serves to balance the sweetness and create a harmonious and well-rounded experience.

Key characteristics:

  • Dominant notes: Bergamot (citrus, floral)
  • Supporting notes: Lavender, rose, chamomile, honey
  • Subtle hints: Gentian root (bitterness)
  • Overall profile: Refreshing, citrusy, floral, with a touch of sweetness and balanced bitterness

Serving Suggestions:

Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto's versatility makes it a fantastic addition to your home bar. Here are a few ways to enjoy its unique flavour profile:

  • Neat or on the Rocks: For a pure appreciation of Italicus' complexity, enjoy it neat, chilled, or on the rocks. The chilled temperature helps to accentuate the refreshing citrus notes.
  • Classic Aperitivo:  Embrace the Italian tradition and enjoy Italicus as an aperitivo before a meal. Simply mix equal parts Italicus and Prosecco in a wine glass filled with ice and garnish with a lemon twist or three green olives for a sophisticated presentation. This simple yet elegant drink is perfect for whetting the appetite and setting the mood for a delightful meal.
  • Cocktail Creations: Italicus shines in a variety of cocktails. Here are a couple of suggestions:
    • The Italicus Spritz: A refreshing twist on the classic Aperol Spritz. Combine 2 parts Italicus, 3 parts Prosecco, and a splash of soda water in a wine glass filled with ice. Garnish with an orange slice.
    • The Bergamot Negroni:  Aromatic and complex, this Negroni variation swaps out the usual orange liqueur for Italicus. Combine equal parts Italicus, gin, and Campari in a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir well and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with an orange peel.
  • Food Pairing:  Italicus' citrusy and floral notes pair beautifully with a variety of dishes. Consider enjoying it alongside:
    • Seafood: The refreshing citrus character complements the delicate flavours of fish and shellfish.
    • Cheese: Italicus pairs well with creamy cheeses like ricotta or mascarpone. The sweetness of the liqueur cuts through the richness of the cheese.
    • Desserts:  Drizzle Italicus over fresh fruit or ice cream for a delightful flavour explosion.
