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!

Classic wine from Piedmont

A classic gem from my favourite region x wine. Never simple, full of amazing flavour and yet very drinkable with all kinds of food. Wine as it should be

A TRULY GREAT OLIVE OIl

I am a regular contributor to a renowned online health newsletter so i know well the risks of buying blended olive oils of doubtful origin: either in the supermarket or online...on the other hand this superb oil is not only beautifully packaged but also has the genuine, delicious flavour of the real McCoy!...another bonus is this particular oil is not ultra finely filtered which is by far the best way to preserve all of the essential nutrients...that's not to say it is cloudy, just not crystal clear...finally once you have purchased the initial 500ml bottle(s) to use on the table to serve frpm, it's available in a variety of larger sized tins to top up your bottle enabling worthwhile savings...all in all an outstanding product and highly recommended by this regular user!...

Best Panettone EVER

This is the best panettone I have ever eaten (and I 've eaten a lot because I love panettone). Insanely delicious and chocolate heaven!!

Fantastic vinegar!!!

I love Pinot Grigio wine, so I decided to try it as a condiment as well... it is a fantastic product enhancing any dish you flavour with it. I dash it on my grilled veggies, it is just so yummy!!!!!

Thank you very much for your lovely comment. All the best from the whole Agrumia team!!!
