A Chinotto tree
Chinotto fruit

The chinotto  (pronounced [kiˈnɔtto], roughly "key-NAWT-toe") is a small bitter citrus fruit from the chinotto, or "myrtle-leaved orange" tree (Citrus aurantium var. myrtifolia). The tree grows to a height of 3m and can be found in Liguria, Tuscany, Sicily and Calabria regions of Italy. The chinotto is an essential flavor component of most Italian bitter amari digestifs, and of the popular Campari liqueur.

The name chinotto is derived from China, from where the tree was thought to originate.[1]


A soft drink by the same name (chinotto) is produced from the juice from the chinotto fruit and herb extracts. Its appearance is similar to that of Coca-Cola. One of its unique attributes is that it tastes bitter and sweet at the same time. It is most commonly consumed before meals because it opens the palate in order to eat more food during a meal. Its bitter/sweet taste is sometimes described as similar to Campari. Chinotto soda dates back to the 1950s, and is produced locally in Italy by different small producers. It is predominantly consumed in Italy and Malta, but recently San Pellegrino, the carbonated water company, has started mass production and export in collaboration with Nestlé, with the brand name "Chinò", and Coca-Cola produces it under the brand name Fanta Chinotto.
