La Valdotaine Amaro dente di Leone
La Valdotaine Amaro dente di Leone...$44.99
The dandelion, (literally ‘lion’s tooth’) was always thought to possess magical powers. The Ancient Greeks believed the seeds were dust thrown up by the chariot of Helios, the sun god. Dandelion leaves nourished Theseus for thirty days before his victory over the Minotaur. Lovers attempt to discover their amorous destinies by blowing dandelion seeds into the wind …‘loves me, loves
me not…’. Herbalists favour the mountain variety with its smaller, richer leaves and intense aroma. This complex amaro blends dandelion with other Alpine herbs such as gentian and genepy. It is sweetened with a pinch of muscovado sugar.
