“Il Ratafià di Nonna Erminia” is a valuable liqueur made from an ancient and jealously guarded family recipe.|
Its realization involves the infusion of twelve aromatic herbs, together with cherry and black cherry leaves, in alcohol and Taurasi wine for a period of time that goes from six months to a year; the final product, well amalgamated, is destined for a further two year aging in cherry barriques.
Traditionally tasted at the end of the meal, in combination with classic desserts, it is also indicated as a meditation liqueur, as it evokes the inscription of Horace engraved on the precious bottle: “Do not worry too much if people is worried for some reason: enjoy the gifts of this moment and forget the strict commitments”.
Compositon: Taurasi wine (aged in barriques for six years); different leaves of cherry and black cherry; twelve aromatic herbs; alcohol; sugar.
