Taste Cantine Pellegrino Amaro Liqueur is bittersweet and complex with spiciness and hints of dried fruit flowers, tobacco, coffee, caramel, candied fruit and sweet vanilla.
History Cantine Pellegrino Amaro Liqueuris crafted deep within the heart of Sicily’s sunbelt lies the Marsala region – a place of warm, mineral-rich soil, sea-kissed breezes and an abundance of golden sunshine. Today Pellegrino is one of the most prosperous and important wine Company in Marsala, grown under the continuous guidance of the Founder’s Family. Notary Paolo Pellegrino, who had a great passion for wine making, founded the Company in 1880. Over the years the Pellegrino’s family growth can be attributed to the happy marriages which always brought development to the Company. Beginning with the marriage of the founder's son, Carlo, who married the French lady Josephine Despagne, daughter of the famous French oenologist Oscar Pierre Despagne, she brought as a dowry the pioneering know-how of her family in the wine making field. In the following generation the maternal lineage of the family has brought new links with the Alagna, Tumbarello, Renda and Bellina families that are presently leading the company : Pietro Alagna currently is the chairman, while Benedetto Renda is the managing director. Paola Alagna and Caterina Tumbarello are part of the management team of the company, while Massimo Bellina has assumed the role of the export director. In 1773, English trader John Woodhouse stopped in Marsala and was charmed by the local wine. Thus began the production of the fortified wine, Marsala. All Pellegrino wines are produced with indigenous grapes brought by the earliest settlers and which are rarely seen in other regions. This area’s low rainfall, hot temperatures and dry winds make chemical treatments unnecessary.
