Referring to Cappelletti Amaro Sfumato Rabarbaro, Remy Samuels of Cordial Craft Wine, Beer & Spirits in Washington, D.C., offers, “It’s like drinking my two favorite things—mezcal and amaro—at the same time.” First imported to the United States in 2016 by Haus Alpenz, Sfumato (the name is a derivation of fumo, meaning smoke in Italian) gets its earthy smokiness from rhubarb root, the key ingredient that defines a rabarbaro style amaro. But the jam-like sweetness from macerated alpine berries and mountainside herbs also offers a dotted line to the category of alpine amaros, like Braulio. “I cannot count the ways I love Sfumato,” says Damon Dhanens. “It’s smoky, sweet, bitter—my everything.”
