Pharmacist Makes Wine-Based Elixir
An Italian pharmacist has recreated a Chianti-based elixir from an 18th-century recipe found lodged behind a shelf in his apothecary shop.
Giovanni De Munari said the recipe was created by one of his Tuscan ancestors, the Italian news service ANSA reported Tuesday.
He said he is working with a distillery to produce the elixir on a commercial scale.
