The origins

O v e r f o u r d e c a d e s o f h i s t o r y

’Amaranca is the Sicilian bitter that comes from the perfection of an ancient secret family recipe, handed down from generation to generation. Before the end of the last millennium, with the same passion as ever and thanks to the twenty-year experience in the wine-liqueur sector of the Romeo Vini company, the actual production began. To date, the preparation in its final phase is carried out only by the members of the family.
Amaranca is the Sicilian bitter obtained from the processing of Sicilian wild orange (citrus aurantium) and from the extraction of medicinal herbs and roots collected on the slopes of Etna. It recalls all the passion of Sicilian workers, such as our ancestor Don Totò Bambaci, who in post-war Sicily were dedicated to the cultivation and extraction of essential oils from citrus fruits (i ’spiritara). A unique and exclusive Sicilian bitter that harmonizes the classic and clean freshness of wild orange and the young and sparkling notes of aromatic herbs. Respecting and confirming, as a good typical product, the combination between Sicily and citrus fruits.
