The History

The Canella family not only provides the world with fizz, fun, and freshness from Canella Proseccos; they have also become masters at blending those zesty bubbles with succulent fruit in delectable, colorful cocktails –such as Bellini.

Blood Orange Mimosa is fast becoming one of the most enjoyable wine cocktails to light up a winter evening, refresh from the summer heat, and add a delectable frisson to any season and occasion. It’s a little like tasting sunlight and snow, together; getting the wholesomeness and vitamin C of the world’s finest blood oranges and at the same time, having fun with it. Natural excellence combines with the joyful effervescence of Venetian sparkling wine in an unbeatable combination.

The Terroir

The blood oranges of sultry Sicily traditionally splash Italian winters with color and warmth, ripening from late December to March.

This cocktail is a blend of Canella sparkling wine and superb, Sicilian blood oranges. The finest varieties are orchestrated to extract the best combination of flavors, fragrance and color: Moro, known for its dark coloring, Tarocco which produces a sweeter flavor than other varieties, and Sanguinello, which has delicate fruit pulp.

Jointly orchestrated by Empson and Canella, Blood Orange Mimosa is one of the most enjoyable wine cocktails to enjoy during the summer heat or add a delectable addition to any season and occasion.
