GSN Review: Don Ciccio & Figli Luna Amaro Bitter

Luna Amara is bitter apéritif liqueur created following the “Italian Bitter of Turin” style. A liqueur with a multi-faceted bitter-sweetness of orange, prickly pear, gentian lutea and chicory mingled with rhubarb and vanilla.

Luna Amaro Bitter (46 proof)
Visual: Medium ruby.
Nose: High and bright top notes with a curious nose unlike anything I’ve had. Almost like fading roses in a florist shop.
Taste: Medium range bitterness akin to an artichoke styled amaro. Very little sweetness, but a nice black tea-like character that is bracing.
Finish: Very long with the bitter notes staying with you for several minutes.
Overall: A hearty amaro that does its job well.  One glass and you’re ready for a meal!
GSN Rating: B+
