" The Aperitivo Cappelletti, endearingly known locally as just “Specialino”, may be the oldest style of the classic red bitter still in production. 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. It offers a vibrant and ﬂavorful proﬁle, complemented by bitter undertones on a traditional wine base. This yields a Negroni or Spritz that is dry and refreshing in the ﬁnish."
