Luxardo’s second speciality after Maraschino Originale produced since 1821. It is a liqueur of marasca cherries, another version of cherry brandy. It is obtained by the infusion of marasca juice. Luxardo cherry liqueur was renamed with the curious name of Sangue Morlacco (Morlacco blood) by the poet Gabriele D’Annunzio in 1919, at the time of the Fiume military expedition, due to its dark red colour. Taste: good body, very rounded on the palate. Quite different from normal cherry brandies, both through the intensity of the cherry’s typical taste, and through the surprising expansion of the after taste, which makes it priceless when combined with pure chocolate.
