From Portofino with love, Chinotto is a type of carbonated soft drink produced from the juice of the fruit of the myrtle-leaved orange tree and quinine. Although similar in colour to cola, it has a distinctive bittersweet taste that was created as an alternative to orange juice in the 50s.
Niasca Portofino has been founded by Portofino residents to restore local traditions, reuse abandoned land and buildings, bring together local businesses but most importantly to convey the beauty of Portofino and its local products in Italy and abroad.
As recommended by our chef
Niasca Portofino Chinotto is the best companion to a nice Italian panino with mortadella. For a quick and tasty lunch try Niasca Portofino with this one: Cut the bread in half and fill it with mortadella. Separately, chop some Parmigiano Reggiano finely and mix with lemon juice to obtain a coarse dough. Add the rest of the chopped cheese and watercress and enjoy.
