Amaretto is a nut-flavored liqueur that has a taste resembling almonds, even though it is made from the kernels of apricot pits. Gioris Amaretto is walnut in color with a rich almond aroma that is first up to the nose, followed by a very subtle dried-cherry note. The body is medium and quite buttery. There is a faint hint of orange zest at the finish. Amaretto adds just the right finish to any meal and Giori`s Amaretto di Volano is one of the best.
