This Italian red bitter liqueur's striking label was created by Piedmontes contemporary artist Riccardo Guasco, who linked each of the four Stucchi products to a famous historical character, in this case, Rodolfo Valentino.
The Strucchi brand name pays homage to Arnaldo Strucchi, author of a 1909 vermouth manual that details recipes and production methods, which remains a regarded reference work today. And in Italy, where there's vermouth, you'll also find a red bitter liqueur, at least if you're lucky!

Clear, crimson red.
Bitter orange oils, ruby red grapefruit, zesty lime, quinine, bay leaf, cherry, and herbal woodiness.
Herbaceous quinine bitterness leads, supported by zesty citrus and acacia honey richness.
Long bitter finish with mint and cherry emerging. Lingering bitterness with zesty mandarine orange.
Bittersweet. Not quite as bitter as Campari but very close, and more bitter than comparable products such as Martini Bitter. Strucchi perhaps boasts more structured zesty citrus notes. It is among the best Italian red bitter liqueurs we've encountered.
