This famous Aosta spirit is produced by laying Artemisia umbelliformis, better known as Genepi femmina plants (a wormwood variant) on mesh suspended over alcohol in an airtight tank for 3 months. The organoleptic qualities of the plant are pulled by the alcoholic vapors into the solution, imparting no pigment and maintaining a crystalline, colorless liqueur. Aromatic and delicate with scents of crisp Alpine air, high altitude plants and summit herbs. Perfect for a delicious and smooth digestivo.
