This is a bitter, tonic liqueur with countless health-giving properties. It is prepared with an infusion of wine and selected herbs such as: the cardoon (Cynara Cardunculus) and the blessed thistle (Cardus Benedictus). Cardoons have been known since a very old age. Theophrastus, Pliny and Charlemagne knew their healthy properties as they were very used in herbalism. Cardoons are very widespread in Piedmont, particularly in the territory of Langhe and Monferrato, and they are used frequently in local cuisine. With its pleasantly bitter, harmonious taste, this is a drink for all occasions, especially after a good meal. Serve straight or with ice.
