Which is a deeper rabbit hole, rums or amari?
The Rabarbaro Sfumato is absolutely delicious on its own, but I haven't found many applications where I prefer it to Zucca, which it was brought to the US market to replace. Mezcal is an obvious dance partner; here's a drink that the head bartender at Boston's Hojoko (my bar's sister bar) had me make him with Zucca but which I also like with the Sfumato:
1 oz Mezcal
1 oz Cappelletti Aperitivo (or Zucca)
1 oz Cappelletti Rabarbaro Sfumato
Stir, strain, rock, orange twist (though I like a lemon twist too).
Have fun with the Nonino. It's a classic for a reason.
