Comments

I shy away from Fernet Branca cocktails most of the time, after mostly unsatisfactory results, but this works. The menthol-like character of the Fernet is the dominant aroma and flavor, but it doesn't overpower the rest. The Lucano blends/transitions well into the Fernet, providing an overall coffee and dark spice character alongside the lush grape of the Carpano which can stand up to the rest. This was a pleasant surprise, not for everyone, but worth a try.
