rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals aren't sure if they are allowed to review Amaro Montenegro since it is not a wine or even a dressed up fortified wine, but we can't resist singing the praises of this Italian herbal liqueur that is the perfect denouement for an evening of drinking wine and giggling. Although it was named after Helen of Montenegro the second Queen of Italy, the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals prefer to think it was named after Montenegro the movie in which Susan Anspach abandons her life of demented domesticity to join a band of lusty Yugoslavs. Made from over 40 different herbs from around the world, Italian poet Gabriele D’Annunzio called it the “liqueur of the virtues.” The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals call Amaro Montenegro bottled bohemia.
Stanislao Cobianchi, a Bolognese renaissance man, founded this company in 1885. He named his Amaro in honour of Princess Helena of Montenegro upon her marriage to Vittorio Emanuele III of Savoy, the first king of the new Italian state. Because of this product’s perceived sweetness, many refer to it as ‘half-bitters’. Deep amber in colour, it features citrus peel, spicy clove and cinnamon notes. Unforgettable.
