Tasting Notes

A much-anticipated new addition to our shelves, Cappelletti Aperitvo is an artisanal wine-based aperitif made by the same family for over four generations in the Alto-Adige region of Italy. Made from mostly Trebbiano, the nose is round and very full, captivating with just a hint of bitterness and herbs. The texture on the palate is generous, providing a slight bitterness from notes of citrus peel. A wonderful mixer for cocktails.

Staff Pick Notes

Right now, you're looking at our amaro wall for your negroni makings; the recipe calls for Campari, but the other bright red apéritifs catch your eye as well. Unlike its next-door-neighbors, the Cappelletti is a wine-based apéritif. That means it's made using a white wine base, instead of neutral grains. This delicious, tangy, and easy-going bitter spirit has all the orange peel bittersweet qualities you love, but is just a little deeper. Pair the Cappelletti with Dolin Rouge for a beautiful negroni, boulevardier, or Americano. It's also perfect on its own, maybe with an orange twist to bring out even more of the aromatic, bittersweet character. Am I allowed to call Cappelletti the official spirit of adult kickball leagues?
