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 the profil of this amaro wich marries a dark smokiness with nuanced bitter woodsiness from alpine herbs and notes of sweet alpine berries. The production of a rabarbaro liqueur by the amari and aperitivi producer Cappelletti dates back almost a century.
The main ingredient is a special Chinese Rhubarb for generations grown in Trentino Alto Adige e Veneto , where it has long been used in a variety of amari.
Sfumato offers a taste profile that resonates with the character and history of the region.
