Found and grown exclusively in Calabria, Southern Italy along the Ionian Coast. The bergamot is a hybrid between a bitter orange and lemon. There are three types of bergamot: femminiello, castagnaro and fantastic.
The Bergamotto Di Calabria contains the precious material called the 'Bergamot sponge'. The extraction is still done manually. First the fruit is sliced in half and the pulp is manually removed with a special in-curved knife. The rind is compressed on a natural sponge in a circular motion to collect the essence. The essence accumulated is the most delicate and complex and resembles a fruity and floral note of jasmine.
A return to the origins, the traditional techniques seize the best raw materials and enriching them with a drop of modernity, a composition that encloses the freshness of bergamot making it, after a long working process, persistent and energetic.Notes:
