Toschi Amarena Aforetta are wild Italian cherries in a delicate syrup, perfect for topping Italian gelato, or finishing off an elegant cocktail. Many consider the intensely sweet amarena cherries as a gourmet alternative to maraschino cherries. Before being sweetened in syrup, the fresh amarena cherries, which are grown in the Vignola region of Italy, have a sour and refreshing taste. With the added sweetness, Toschi Amarena Aforetta are also ideal for garnishing sweets and cakes.
