Wild Cherries in Syrup
The Fabbri Company of Bologna has been making these uniquely delicious cherries in amarena syrup for over a century. Only the best wild cherries are carefully selected and candied in amarena syrup according to Gennaro Fabbri’s original recipe, created in 1905 in the small Emilia Romagna town of Portomaggiore.
As well as being delicious with vanilla ice-cream, these amarena cherries are great baked into cakes and muffins. Don’t waste the syrup either: mix it with Prosecco for a tasty aperitif, or with sparkling water for a refreshing drink.
The recipes go on – Fabbri even provides a range of ideas to enjoy your amaerna cherries & syrup to the max!

History: The story of the Fabbri Company begins in 1905 when Ferrara-native Gennaro Fabbri and his wife Rachele took over an old general store in Portomaggiore, which was in close proximity to a wild black cherry orchard. One day, Rachele picked the cherries and slowly cooked them and semi-candied them in copper pots. She transformed the cherries into a wonderfully delicious treat that soon became known as the Amarena Fabbri.
To thank his wife, Gennaro purchased a ceramic jar from Riccardo Gatti, an artist from Faenza. The unmistakable white and blue ceramic jar has become a trademark of Amarena Fabbri ever since.
