    Cappelletti is a fourth generation herbalist from Aldeno Trento in the North East of Italy, producing Aperitivi and Amari. Otherwise known as 'Smoky rhubarb,' this wine-based recipe is a variation on spirit based amaros that employ gentian or quinine for the main bittering agents. Instead, Cappelletti use a variety of rhubarb root combined with alpine herbs and berries.

    Tasting note: Pours a viscous, turbid, umber brown with gold ochre edges. Peaks on the nose with an amalgam of intense earthy, rooty, woody aromas followed by cigar box, smouldering cedar and pipe tobacco. Creamy with gently bittersweet flavours of kumquat, liquorice root, smoked herb, bitter peel. Dries at the finish. Ends pleasantly bitter with a subtle smokey dried herb aftertaste. 20% Alc./Vol.
