Most amari are spirits-based, but Cardamaro is derived from wine. This silky-smooth version from Piedmonte utilizes Moscato as its base and flavors it with cardoons, a close relative of the artichoke. It has light, tangy, and herbaceous notes that make it a gentle amaro to down on its own. Sipping it with an ice cube is akin to enjoying a sweet vermouth straight, as the flavor profiles are comparable due to similar origins (vermouth is a fortified wine aromatized with herbs and spices) and distillation processes.
