In line with the traditional Italian style, the spirit centers around major flavor components: bitterness from gentian root and sweetness from cane sugar. Citrus is the third major component, so they add distilled coriander and grapefruit peels to give it a bright, citrus aroma.

The color comes from cochineal (insects), which adds the vibrant red color that one expects from a traditional Aperitivo as it has been used in spirits for hundreds of years.More info
