Spicy Addict Review
The Vesuvius Italian Sriracha Hot Sauce starts with a slight natural sweetness from Tomatoes balanced by a mild tartness of Red Wine Vinegar. The two compliment each other well. These are joined by savory flavors of Onion, Garlic and other spices. There is even the slightest herbal quality that arises from the inclusion of Basil in this sauce. Next the flavor and heat of the Serrano Peppers begin to rise above the rest pulling this Italian style condiment squarely into the realm of “hot sauce”. Finally, you are left with a slight salty finish with the lingering flavor of peppers.
This sauce would compliment meat and vegetable dishes where a Mediterranean quality is desired. Neither the sweetness nor the tartness overpower the food. This sauce is on the milder side with a heat reaching into the high 1s or 2 on a 5-point scale.
