About Cappelletti Aperitivo

Looking for a way to instantly elevate your Negroni? Or to make your spritzes better than the rest? Where others may go for Campari or Aperol, we suggest you reach for Cappelletti Aperitivo.

This traditional red bitter liqueur is about as authentically Italian as you can get. It is less sweet than the more common brands, and has a pleasing drying finish.

Locals call it "Specialino." We call it a sign that you're a person of uncommon taste.

Look for a vibrant coral-orange glow, and aromas that mix berry sweetness and floral notes. The palate is surprisingly juicy, suggesting blood orange, fading into candied orange peel at the sweet-bitter end. The base is Italian wine (Pinot Bianco, Garganega), not a distilled spirit, and it drinks like a lighter version of Campari. Sip or mix. - Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast

Tasting Notes

Floral and ripe berries on the nose. The palate is distinctively orange, fruity, bright, punchy, slightly bitter, with the taste of citrus peel at the end. Softness, complexity, and freshness, with a pleasant drying finish owing to its wine base.

Suggested Serves

Classic: Sip on an authentic Italian Spritz 

Unexpected: Exceedingly delicious: The Seersucker No. 2. Bourbon, apricot liqueur, and Cappelletti Aperitivo. Garnish with a lemon twist.
Production Notes

A red wine base made from Trebbiano grapes distinguishes Cappalletti from its more well-known counterparts, which are made with a neutral grain spirit. Infused with a blend of herbs & orange, it's sweetened with cane sugar, colored with natural carmine, and flavored with local botanicals.

    Better than Aperol in a Spritz

    I first tasted Cappelletti at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, CA. They used it in place of Aperol in a Spritz, and It was a revelation. The cough-syrup sweetness of Aperol was replaced by the floral delight of Cappelletti. Since then, I've used Cappelletti in place of Campari in Negronis with equal success. Campari's bitterness is replaced by the smoothness of Cappelletti. The problem was Cappelletti was hard to find. I bought three bottles from Curiada, and solved my problem.

    Great for Negronies

    This is a great alternative to Campari. It is less bitter than Campari, but still has a great flavor when used in a Megroni.
