History tells us that Roman gladiators flavored their food with fennel, believing it to be a source of strength. Perhaps they were on to something, or perhaps they just had good taste. Finocchietto is a fine savory digestif and a cooking staple in many Neapolitan kitchens. A clean, vegetal and fresh anise flavor, with an unmistakable fragrance and taste. This take on the classic is made by Don Ciccio & Figli in Washington, D.C., based on their family recipes from the Amalfi coast, and using fresh fennel with a hint of dill in the production.
