Product description

Unlike its larger commercial rivals, Cappelletti is less sweet and has a wonderful drying finish. Additionally, it still uses natural carmine color for a crimson red and retains a vinous texture from its wine base. You get a Negroni or Spritz that is dry and refreshing in the finish. The producer, which goes by the full name Antica Erboristeria Cappelletti, was first established in 1909. As the name would suggest, the firm was and is still today focused on products from traditional herbs, roots and flowers. All production is done in house by the fourth generation of the family, Luigi and Maddalena Cappelletti. More information: --Haus Negroni Stir with ice: 1 oz Hayman's Royal Dock Gin 1 oz Aperitivo Cappelletti 1 oz Dolin Rouge Vermouth de Chambéry Strain into a double rocks glass filled with ice.

    After reading the Spritz book, this is my new go to spritz bitter. Natural coloring and a lot less added sugar equals perfection.


Fortified wines are a category that have had distilled spirits added to them during the winemaking process. These include popular dessert wines such as vermouth, sherry, and port.
Our advice is always "drink it when you want to," but typically PX (Pedro Ximenez) sherry is enjoyed with dessert while oloroso, amontillado, and palo cortado can be served with main dishes.
There are five basic types of fortified wine: sherry, port, vermouth, Madeira, and Marsala. Technically, however, any wine that has had neutral spirits added to it can be classified as a fortified wine.
Standard wine is produced from grapes through fermentation in a standard winemaking process, while fortified wines have had distilled spirits added to them either during winemaking or to the finished product. Fortified wines typically have a higher alcohol content than their unfortified counterparts.
It varies by the wine, but most dessert fortified wines fall into the 15-24% ABV range, while unfortified wines have a typical average ABV of 11-16%.
