Braulio Amaro Alpino is an Italian herbal wine that is bitter in flavor and filled with a variety of aromatic notes. The wine is a popular recipe that is being revived thanks to its traditional heritage.

Unlike most red wines, the Braulio Amaro Alpino blend is made in the alpine mountains giving it a unique flavor profile. The wine features a mix of 13 different herbs and most remain a well-kept secret except for gentian, wormwood, yarrow and juniper. It is speculated that the blend also includes cinnamon, orange peel, cloves and mint. The overall flavor is much stronger than an average red wine with a bitter, minty and aromatic profile. The beverage is meant to be enjoyed after meals in small quantities thanks to its 42-proof content.
