Cappelletti Alta Verde Amaro

Item # 42343 750mL

Cappelletti, one of the masters of traditional Italian liqueurs, uses assenzio wormwood as the bitter base for Alta Verde. It’s surrounded with a bouquet of herbaceous and fresh citrus-focused botanicals that lend the amaro complexity but keep it from becoming heavy or astringent. Definitely one that should be worked into your rotation of great bitters.
