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.
