One night in the late 1960s, at Milan’s historic Bar Basso, owner Mirko Stocchetto accidentally reached for a bottle of sparkling wine instead of gin when making a Negroni. The customer didn’t seem to mind and the Negroni Sbagliato (spagliato means “mistaken” in Italian) was born. Make no mistake, though, Dante’s elevated take respects the drink’s heritage while presenting it in a whole new way.
