Marco Colzani's Morettini Pear Nectar is a love letter to Italy's best fruit. Take the platonic ideal of perfectly ripened pears and imagine drinking its juice straight from the blender. Marco preserves precisely the right amount of pear pulp to create an elegant texture that is structured yet clean. Sipping from the quaint glass bottle, you have the almost alarming sensation of feeling the graininess and juiciness of the sun-ripened pear in a cool refreshing drink. ...read more
Marco Colzani makes his Pear Nectar the only way a trained enologist knows: using the highest quality fruit grown in the perfect environment and harvested by hand at the peak of ripeness.
And just as if he were bottling fine wine, Marco displays the variety of fruit, area of cultivation, and year of production on the label. The pears are processed within 24 hours of harvesting and are therefore never frozen. Each Nectar is made without chemical preservatives, additives, and dyes. Marco's goal is to respect the beauty of fresh fruit by bottling it as it is, with just a bit of Italian raw sugar and some lemon juice.
This is the breakfast beverage par excellence - which may be why it's in high demand at the world's top hotels - and makes a luxurious treat at any time of the day. Mix these fruit nectars with your favorite spirits or tonics for a stunning cocktail or mocktail. Sipping these nectars is the closest thing to drinking fresh Italian fruit: complete with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, all left intact through a gentle pasteurization process. Following his minimalist principle, he decided "to take away everything unnecessary, and try to come as close as possible to the original."
