Delicate red hue, the subtle wine background elevates an array of tamed wild cherry flavor with light lemon and almond notes.
Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Perhaps you’ve seen the dark bottle with the green devil, and wondered what on earth was inside. Answer: It’s a fortified sweet white wine spiked with cherries and quinine. All this makes for an enticing aperitif with a cherry-red hue. The flavors are subtle and earthy, alternating between sweet and tart, with a modest-some might say angelic-alcohol level.
Created in 1884 by Mr. Auguste Maurin in Le Puy. A sweet white wine fortified with an infusion of wild cherries and quinine in a neutral grape spirit, with measured amounts of cherry brandy, lemon and cherry juice added.
|An Italian born artist later created the infamous icon of the green devil as the label for Maurin Quina.
