Bombaccione Hot Sauce by Condimento Foods has a decidedly Mediterranean profile intended to reflect the flavors common throughout food in that region.
The sauce starts off slightly sweet with a quick transition to more savory flavors including Oregano and the clear presence of Anchovies. There is a slight smoky quality, perhaps from the Anchovies as well, before the bold flavors of the peppers bring forth both flavor and heat. The entire sauce is rounded out by a Salty and Citrus finish.
This sauce pairs particularly well with pizza but can stand up to stronger flavored foods such as beef and lamb. It brings a reasonable heat which on a 5-point heat scale registers in the low to mid 2s.
