Sanpellegrino Aranciatta Rossa

When it comes to ‘fancy’ soft drinks, Sanpellegrino Aranciatta Rossa comes to mind first, hav­ing come across it when I was in primary school. There are many fla­vours in the Sanpellegrino range, but this is the one I see most often in Australia. It’s a soft drink made with the juice of Italian blonde and blood oranges.

The soft drink is a cloudy red-orange col­our with a sweet blood orange nose and mod­er­ate car­bon­a­tion. Served chilled, a sweet and intense orange fla­vour comes through from the first sip with the bright and slightly sharp acid­ic cit­rus notes of blood oranges emer­ging ahead of the refresh­ing sweet­ness of blonde oranges, leav­ing a refresh­ingly zesty cit­rus note linger­ing on the pal­ate pleas­antly. Overall, the fla­vour is full and well bal­anced, and the per­fect fla­voured drink for quench­ing thirst.

This can of Sanpellegrino Aranciatta Rossa con­tained 330 ml. It was bottled in Italy and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2016.
