Meletti Anisette is one of Italy’s oldest liqueurs produced using Silvio Meletti’s original recipe from 1870. Naturally aromatic, anise seed from Le Marche is distilled in a bain marie, then blended with herbs for further distillation to attain intensified aromatics and a smooth palate. Aged in stainless steel tanks for 4-6 months, then fine filtered using wool, Meletti Anisette is an elegant digestivo that is enjoyable on its own or with coffee. Technical notes Alcohol: 34. 00%
Food pairing This wine is a delightful enhancement to espresso or by itself as an after dinner drink. You may enjoy it straight up or on the rocks.
Producer Since 1870, the Meletti family has been producing Italy’s most beloved liqueurs in the fertile lands of Ascoli Piceno on the Adriatic coastal region of Le Marche. Under the direction of Silvio Meletti, the finest, natural ingredients are cultivated, selected, and blended to create limited-production artisanal cordials, aperitivos, digestivos, and liqueurs of distinctive character. Silvio Meletti wanted to create a local product that could compete with the expensive imported liqueurs. After carefully studying various distillation processes, Silvio developed a unique production method using a bain-marie still which allows for a slow evaporation process that renders highly aromatic distillates. This art of distillation, along with original recipes, have been passed down through generations of Melettis and are the foundation of the family’s portfolio today. Most ingredients, including the anise and other natural herbs and botanicals, are sourced from local Le Marche growers who work exclusively with Meletti. Other ingredients are sourced from high quality producers specializing in their product. From citrus fruit cultivated by Italy’s top growers in Sorrento to Dutch cocoa imported from The Netherlands, no expense is spared in the pursuit of the finest ingredients. Family-owned and -operated for more than 140 years, Matteo Meletti represents the 5th generation of the family to carry forth the business.
