Sanpellegrino Aranciata

Beyond fresh orange juice, orange fla­voured foods and drinks aren’t usu­ally some­thing I’m par­tic­u­larly keen to try. That is unless it’s this Sanpellegrino Aranciata. The Sanpellegrino brand makes such deli­cious and soph­ist­ic­ated soft drinks, it’s dif­fi­cult to res­ist.

The soft drink is a trans­lu­cent orange col­our with a medi­um-strong effer­ves­cence and a zesty orange nose. Served chilled, gently sour cit­rus notes of orange come through ahead of a sweeter body akin to the flesh of an orange fol­lowed by a subtle bit­ter fin­ish that recalls car­a­mel­ized orange rind. The fla­vour in this soft drink is bal­anced with a fresh fla­vour much like a juicy squeezed orange with a restrained sweet­ness. Using 20% orange juice, it’s infin­itely more com­plex than your ordin­ary orange soft drinks.

This can of Sanpellegrino Aranciata con­tained 330 ml. It was pro­duced in Italy and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
