Angioletti Sparkling Secco and Rosé with Blueberry

Angioletti Italian craft cider - Agrumia

Angioletti is a premium sparkling craft Italian cider made from selected apples exclusively grown in the picturesque Italian dolomites. Our ciders are made from 100% juice and contain no artificial sweeteners, flavourings or colourings.

 So, craft Italian cider? Never heard of it?!

Well, you probably haven’t; cider or ‘sidro’ in Italy is quite a rare sight, and there’s one fairly unsavoury character to blame for this, and his name is Benito Mussolini…  Among a few other ill-considered decisions, he forbade the fermentation of all other fruit other than grapes so as to support the Italian wine industry.  Good news for Italian wine, bad news for Italian cider!
Fast forward a few decades, and things are now looking up for craft Italian cider.  The craft beer phenomenon has spread across the world, with brewers and drinkers alike rejoicing in a wave of interesting and tasty brews.  In many countries, this growth in craft beer has gone hand in hand with growth in craft cider, or craft ‘hard cider’ as it is known in the US.  Italian ‘craft’ products have always been well received in English-speaking countries, whether it be fine wine (thanks Mussolini…), Italian gastronomy, designer clothes or fast cars.
Angioletti – Italian – Craft – Cider brings together these three popular product types, but what makes it ‘craft’?
• Unlike other so-called Italian ciders, Angioletti is always made and bottled in Italy. Would you want to drink a bottle of Barolo that had been bottled in Bristol, or drive a Maserati that had been put together in Manchester…?  Nothing against Bristol or Manchester, but at Angioletti, we feel it is important to produce an authentic product using local production methods.  In fact, Angioletti is fermented in traditional Italian ‘autoclavi’, in the same way as Prosecco!
• Most mass-produced cider is made from concentrate, and this concentrate is normally bought as a commodity from wherever it is cheapest at the time. This makes for very cheap cider, but not very good cider.  The apples used for Angioletti are always 100% Italian and Angioletti is never made using concentrate.
So now you’ve heard of it, we’d love for you to try some Italian craft cider, so please get in touch!
Cheers!

FANTASTICO

GREAT WINE THANKS 🙂

FANTASTICO

GREAT WINE THANKS CIAO

Great Fizzy red

Fab red wine, great taste and so easy to drink. Nice cold or room temp.
Got it before Xmas as they delivered bit to me by express. Thanks for that great service. Much appreciated.

This was bought as a stocking filler for my eldest son - he loves this sauce!
It has not yet been eaten, but I give the service the highest rating - it arrived promptly & I was emailed reassuringly to confirm it was on its way.
I know that my son has told me that this sauce is absolutely superb and different to the usual pasta sauce flavours.

Great product

Love this craft cider. Light easy-going and nice flavour.
Reasonable price
