The pièce de résistance on a night of amazing friends, food and wine. My first Cappellano Chinato and this was a stunner. Not quite amaro but definitely on the savory side. Loads of roots, mint, anise and other herbs. Paired with the fudge brownie. I can’t wait to have this again some day.

Incredible depth and layering of flavors. Fruit, herbs, spice, sweets.

A transfiguring, shape-shifting demon of flavor and memory. A single sip is like the ending scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey but instead of weird space stuff, it's the rolling hills of Piedmont and 1000s of herbs and fruits morphing into one another. #magic @Raymond Domenico

Nearly shed a tear. The aroma is fresh spruce, mint, and fresh wintergreen tobacco. Certainly a supper, a really cool treat.

I love that everywhere literally just gives this away here. Much nicer then $15-20 for 2oz in the US.

The perfect way to finish a meal, a classic from the originators.
