Anyone know where I could pick up a bottle of Cardamaro? I'd prefer it be in the Cambridge/Arlington area, but willing to drive if I must.

Thanks in advance.

      Found it at Dave's. Thanks. Glad to have set foot in Dave's, it's a very cool little shop. Will be back for some cured Italian meats.

    2. I thought it was going to be a cardamom-based amaro, but it's made with cardone (or cardoon), which you can get in season at Russo's.

        I made that exact assumption, too! Cardoon and blessed thistle, it turns out. Apparently just the thing if you're feeling a little touch of the Black Death. And it's wine-based, only 34 proof.

      2. It's getting increasingly easy to find around town. Definitely at Federal Wine & Spirits, likely at Cirace.
