Cardamaro Vino Amaro
The Everyone Amaro. Enjoyed as an aperitif or digestif, paired with salty cheeses, nuts and charcuterie.
This distinguished expression of traditional Piemonte flavors is a wine-based Amaro, a predecessor to the now more common styles of Amari. It is prepared by an infusion of cardoon, blessed thistle, and other botanicals in the estate wine of the Bosca family, then rested on new oak for at least six months. The recipe originated with the founder of this now 7th generation winemaking family.
