Best Amaro, available in Rome not Chicago

I should have posted this question here (as well as on the Italy Board).
A friend of mine loves Amari, and she has tried a lot of them. Only a few kinds are available in the Chicago area. I am in Rome, and I wanted to get a nice bottle for her (one that she could not easily get in the States). Any suggestions?

  1. My wife brought me back a bottle of Vecchia Umbria amaro from a trip this fall. I've only gotten around to having it once, but I really enjoyed it. Compares well with Nonino. She brought another one that's kind of a train wreck I wouldn't recommend.
