Made in Italy (near Trento) this aromatized wine is known as ‘Il Specialino’ to locals.  It’s used in a variety of applications – from making a less sweet Negroni to refreshing spitz.  Thanks to the acidity, it can also seem somewhat lighter than its liqueur based cousins and wouldn’t require a liquor license (merely beer & wine).    The color comes from carmine (if that sort of thing matters to you). All of those wonderful things don’t really explain why you’d want to actually drink Cappelletti.  So let me break it down.  Cappelletti is a bright, punchy – slightly bitter – orange aperitif that adds a punchy citrus bitter element to a drink.  It’s lighter than traditional amaros and is less overbearing.
