Varnelli Amaro dell'Erborista

Straight from Central Italy along the Adriatic Sea, Varnelli is unfiltered, boldly bitter, and features a hint of smoke. "All the botanicals are cooked on an open fire, so it has this smoky character," Carducci says. It's also sweetened with a honey unique to the nearby Sibillini Mountains, with notes of gentian, rhubarb and sandalwood as well.
