The Amarena cherry is a small bitter (amara, in Italian) dark colored Italian cherry grown in Bologna and Modena. Italian Amarena cherry purée and our Traditional 18 Year Style dark balsamic base are blended together creating a rich, leathery midpoint followed by notes of sweet and sour Amarena cherry. The end result is a flavor explosion of cherry and grape must that is at once sour and bitter. Pair this vinegar with Persian Lime, Chipotle or Blood Orange olive oil for a deliciously well-balanced vinaigrette or to cook leafy greens. Drizzle over Greek yogurt for a decadent and healthy treat.
