On the sun-drenched slopes of Sicily’s Mt. Etna grows an extraordinary citrus: Sanguinello, Sicily’s blood orange. Locally, it is known as Arancia Rossa, for the deep crimson hue of its flesh. It is a natural jewel of the Mediterranean—the deeper the colour, the bolder the flavour contained within. There are only a few short months during the Mediterranean winter when the nighttime temperature drops to the perfect point… It is during this window of time that the Arancia Rossa bursts with an intense, bittersweet and almost spicy flavour. It is then and only then that the blood orange is ready for picking.
