Amarena Fabbri: The Extraordinary Cherry from Italy

Fabbri-CSThe Fabbri Company of Bologna, Italy has its humble origins in 1905, when it was started by Gennaro Fabbri and his wife Rachele. The company’s story begins in Portomaggiore, a small town in Emilia Romagna, with wild black cherry orchard. Once she picked the cherries, Rachele Fabbri slowly cooked and semi-candied them in copper pots, transforming them into a wonderfully delicious treat that became known in short time as the Amarena Fabbri.

Decadent, delicious and intensely flavorful, Amarena Fabbri cherries are still produced from wild black cherries. The cherries are a fleshy, dark red variety with a burst of flavor that is both sweet and tart. These luscious cherries and their rich cherry syrup are crafted today using the same family recipe developed more than 100 years ago. In addition (and important to the modern consumer), the Amarena Fabbri are gluten-free, kosher and Halal-certified.

Amarena Fabbri cherries are perfect for candy centers or enrobed in chocolate. The essence of these cherries makes them ideal for mixologists to use in innovative cocktails, especially the famous sparkling Amarena Amore Mio (made with Prosecco wine). They are equally appreciated and enjoyed as a delicious topping for gelato, ice cream, cheesecake and desserts, as well as in a multitude of savory dishes and preparations.

Whether you are creating a new recipe or just spooning them out of their beautiful opaline vase, Amarena Fabbri cherries will make any dessert or dish a memorable experience—one that is authentically Italian.

Inquiries for Amarena Fabbri or other Fabbri products can be made by emailing info@fabbrinorthamerica.com or by calling 718.764.8311.
