Americano, Contratto

The first Contratto Vermouth recipes date back to the 1890s; though the estate was producing hundreds of thousands of bottles by the 1930s, it was shuttered in the sixties and only recently revived. With recipes older than 100 years and passed on through the generations, Contratto is produced under the watchful eye of notorious La Spinetta winemaker Giorgio Rivetti. The project is committed to elevating the quality of bitter beverages: base distillates and wines are made from estate grapes, grown at Contratto’s UNESCO world heritage site, while botanicals and coloration are 100% all natural (and vegan).

Tasting Notes

Torino’s sweeter, more bitter relative never tasted so good!  While similar to Vermouth Rosso, Contratto’s Americano Rosso has 20g/L more sugar than the vermouth, lower alcohol content and three times the wormwood.  Americano is the perfect choice for mixing with a spirit that is above 90 proof to provide a light, sweet balance of sugar and acid.
