The term Sfumato derives from the Italian word for smoke - 'fumo'. It is traditionally associated with a style of Renaissance painting characterized by subtle transitions between areas of dark and light. This speaks directly to this amaro's profile, which marries a dark smokiness with bitter woodsiness from alpine herbs and notes of sweet alpine berries. The main ingredient is a special Rabarbaro (rhubarb) variety that grows in the Trentino Alto Adige and Veneto. The production of a Rabarbaro liqueur by the amari and aperitivi producer Cappelletti dates back almost a century. Enjoy with tonic, grapefruit soda, or whiskey.
"I cannot count the ways I love Sfumato. It's smoky, sweet, bitter--my everything."
