Cynar 70 Proof Amaro (1L)

SKU #1225548 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 New to the market and developed specifically for cocktails, this higher-octane version of classic Cynar offers bold allspice and star anise up front, dark chocolate and vanilla on the midpalate, and finishes spiced and lightly bitter, with a flicker of alcohol heat. (KN)  (4/2016)

Wine & Spirits

 *Year's Best Spirits 2016* It’s not often that you see a dusty denizen of the back bar—especially one as niche as this classic artichoke-infused amaro—given a high-profile reboot. The numeral in the spirit’s name refers to its proof, which is more than double the original Cynar’s 33. A higher alcohol content allows a spirit to carry more flavor, which Cynar 70 joyfully does. Whereas the original Cynar has a puckering, bitter crackle, Cynar 70 allows deeper, darker, sweeter notes to emerge, reminiscent of coffee and dark chocolate gilded with orange peel and cinnamon. After a silky crescendo of complex flavor, it glides into a characteristically bitter, but not puckering finish. The original Cynar is a great mixer, but creamy Cynar 70 can stand on its own. All you other amaros, watch out. (JM)  (12/2016)

K&L Notes

Bam! Campari has just released the new Cynar 70 - the same great artichoke amaro you've come to love, but with double the intensity and double the proof of the original. The result is like a mixologists dream come true - bolder flavor, bolder spice, and bolder bitterness. Grab it while it's hot!

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
