Amarena Fabbri Wild Cherries in Syrup are irresistable! The Fabbri Company of Bologna has been making 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.
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.
