Colatura di Alici - Anchovy Extract from Cetara

Olive Points: 110pts

Price £11.00

 Sold Out 


Volume: 50ml

This wonderful amber coloured juice is a super concentrated version of our ever-popular Colatura di Alici from Cetara. It too comes from salted Cetara anchovies and is also produced using a traditional process to marinate the anchovies. Acquapazza's Colatura is considered to be one of the best Colatura on the market thanks to the ageing period which produces such a rich and concentrated extract and it can only be found in a limited number of specialist shops in Italy.

The preparation of Acquapazza's Colatura is simple and natural but follows strict rules that begin with fishing for the best anchovies in the Gulf of Salerno from March to July.Once the anchovies have been gutted and salted they are closed in a special, traditional wooden barrels called 'terzigni'. During the marinade of the anchovies the liquid is collected and exposed to the sunlight. After 6 months the liquid pours through a hole in the bottom of the special chestnut barrel and is bottled and the Colatura is finally ready for your recipes. This gorgeous bottle comes in a gift box and has a useful dropper on the top to help you use only the necessary amount you need - and you literally only need a few drops at a time!

Wonderful on pasta and very easy to recreate the traditional recipe for the sauce (just add some garlic, olive oil and parsley to 1 teaspoon per person of Colatura).
