COLOR

AROMA

Delicate, yet enticing. The Bellini is both fresh and fruity, a sweet prelude to its timeless flavor.

From the very first sip the palate is delighted by a lively sparkle that brings out the sweetness of the peach puree, which in turn balances the slight tart note of the Prosecco.

The story of the drink dedicated to life and liberty

In 1948, memories of war and the emancipation were still fresh in the hearts of people across Europe. It was at this time when Giuseppe Cipriani, in the newly opened Harry’s Bar, decided to celebrate peace and freedom with a cocktail that embodied the energetic joy of the moment: the Bellini.
The Bellini’s name was inspired by the famous Italian Renaissance painter Giovanni Bellini, also known as Giambellino. After seeing his lifework collection on display at the Ducal Palace in Venice in 1948, Giuseppe Cipriani used the artist’s namesake to honor the ideals of beauty and freedom.
Thus, the Bellini became a part of history as a classic, an eternal symbol of freedom, art, and refined revelry.
