Family:Other Liqueur
Brand:Luxardo

Description

Luxardo’s second historical speciality after Maraschino Originale. It is a liqueur of marasca cherries (a sour cherry variety exclusively cultivated by Luxardo) - a variant of cherry brandy. It is obtained by the infusion of fermented marasca juice, matured for two years in oak vats. Luxardo cherry liqueur was renamed with the curious name of Sangue Morlacco (Morlacco blood) by the poet Gabriele D’Annunzio in 1919, at the time of the Fiume military expedition, due to its dark red colour while “Morlacco” derived from the name of warrior people of the Dalmatian hinterland. 


Tasting notes
  • Colour: dark red.
  • Aroma: intense, inebriating perfume of marasca.
  • Taste: good body, very rounded on the palate. Quite different from normal cherry-brandies, both through the intensity of the cherry’s typical taste (here decidedly enhanced), and through the surprising expansion of the after-taste, which makes it priceless when combined with pure chocolate.

Recommended combination

  • With pure dark chocolate.
  • With berry fruit syrup or over vanilla ice-cream.

Observations

Serving suggestions

  • Neat, at room temperature or with ice, as an after  dinner drink or meditation liqueur. 
  • In mixed drinks, in several coded international cocktails using cherry- brandy as an ingredient: Singapore Sling, Yale, Hollander Pousse Café, Cherry-brandy flip, Cherry Cobbler , etc. 
  • With berry fruits (raspberries, bilberries, blackcurrants, etc.).

 Packaging: Round black bottle, with black capsule; the  label shows D’Annunzio’s signature in connection with the liqueur’s “baptism”. The back label contains some serving suggestions and the required legal information.
