A privately curated amaro tasting in Rome.
With its bitter-sweet flavor, a texture that goes from inky to syrupy, and an alcohol content that ranges between 16% and powerhouse, amaro is now widely popular with palates all over the world. But the Italian tradition of amaro is steeped in centuries of history.
Amaro is a particular type of Italian liqueur made by macerating herbs, roots, flowers, bark, or citrus rinds in an alcohol base, mixing the filtered product with sugar syrup, and allowing the mixture to age in aromatic casks or bottles.
The result is a bitter beverage with varying flavors, levels of sweetness and alcohol content.

We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Rome. We visited a neighborhood food market and several local food merchants, including a bakery, a pizza place, and a cheese store. Our guide was very knowledgeable about food, history, and traditions. Highly recommended!Poland221USA
