Critics Tasting Note, Wine Entusiast 2017 "Among the canon of Italian spirits, Aperol and the Aperol Spritz cocktail are classics, available at a growing range of America's best bars. The lurid red hue is recognizable from across the room. It's light on every count—in terms of alcohol content, sweetness level and texture. The gentle sweet-bitter profile goes down easy—especially when lightened with bubbles."
Wine Entusiast 2014 "Sophisticated and delightful aromas of tangerine and rhubarb. The palate entry is delightfully citrusy and sweet; the midpalate phase offers just enough herbal bitterness to balance. Ends up refreshing, orangey sweet and delectably herbal. This deserves to become a popular pre-dinner quaff."
The Winemaker "Hardly bitter at all, more like a zesty orange cordial with faint bitterness. Flavours of zesty orange marmalade and pink grapefruit predominate."

K&L - "Aperol's unique flavor and color is achieved through a subtle blend of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and an array of herbs and roots--using a secret recipe that has been unchanged since its first creation in 1919. Try the classic Aperol Spritz: 3 parts Aperol, 2 parts Prosecco, 1 part soda over ice with an orange twist. The ultimate in thirst-quenching cocktails."
An orange/red coloured Italian aperitif. created in 1919, and made of an infusion of rhubarb, cinchona (the tree from which quinine comes), gentian and several other herbs.
The Barbieri Company was established in 1891 by Giuseppe Barbieri in Padua, Italy to produce and market a wide range of Liqueurs, The company's most famous and enduring product, Aperol, was especially created in 1919 by his two sons, Luigi and Silvio for Padua International Fair, a large exhibition attracting international visitors held in their home town. Silvio Barbieri named Aperol after the French word for aperitif, 'Apero', which he had learnt on a recent trip to France and seemed appropriate for their new bitter-sweet liqueur.
Veneto is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy.
