  • Good, but maybe dominated a bit by the Gran Classico
  • Sweet but complex. Very interesting and unique; haven't had another cocktail that tastes quite like it — ★★★★★
  • Great flavor - a bit too sweet. Perhaps a less sweet amaro than Gran Classico? Or a mixture of GC and, say, Ramazotti? — ★★★★
  • Tasty. A little on the sweet side perhaps? Might want to find a less sweet aromatized wine next time. — ★★★
