Use our Piccolo Dito aperitifs to enliven cocktails, or just brighten a summer evening with them straight or on the rocks.
With summer fully upon us, adding Piccolo Dito to your shelf is a timely choice. Whether poured on ice when fireside or sipped at room temperature, these hand-crafted fortified wines bring brotherly warmth into your home. Our Amaro, Mistella, Vermouth — all created from 100% Michigan grapes — are the latest, possibly the funnest, addition to the our portfolio of fine wines.
