Earthy and quite savoury with an even, moderate bubble, San Pellegrino has a smooth, subtle personality with a mineral tang on the finish. Finely balanced in the mouth with attractive texture. Huon Hooke and Ralph Kyte-Powell, www.goodfood.com.au (14/May/2013)
S.Pellegrino is brilliant, lacking in any distracting odor, with a fairly dense perlage of reasonably fine bubbles in abundance.
The immediate impression on the taste buds is one of tingling freshness, followed by moderate acidity that stimulates salivation, while the high mineral content leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Generally speaking, S.Pellegrino has a commendable structure, and leaves behind a persistent and gratifying sensation.
Serve at 8-10 degrees.
S.Pellegrino mineral water flows from a thermal spring at the foot of a dolomite mountain wall towering above the Brembo river in the Italian Alps. The town of San Pellegrino Terme is located near Bergamo some 25 Kilometers northeast of Milan.
The geological and morphological structure of the San Pellegrino Terme area is highly favourable for the formation of the S.Pellegrino mineral water basin.
During this process, the water is mineralized through contact with the rocks and is heated by geothermal gradient until reaching the spring, where it has the balanced composition of S.Pellegrino mineral water.
