Sanpellegrino Pompelmo

Italian soft drinks seem to have a more soph­ist­ic­ated pro­file, and this here is Sanpellegrino Pompelmo, a spark­ling grapefruit drink made from fruit in the Mediterranean.

The bever­age is an opaque pale yel­low col­our with a sweet grapefruit nose and mod­er­ate car­bon­a­tion. Served chilled, sweet notes of yel­low grapefruit come through ini­tially with the zesty sour­ness build­ing in intens­ity mid sip ahead of a brief bit­ter­sweet fin­ish before return­ing to a sweet cit­rus after­taste. Overall, the bever­age is aro­mat­ic and refresh­ing, with a depth of fla­vour that tastes just like juice from a freshly squeezed grapefruit.

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