Aperitif, 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

Distilled from the noble Piedmontese grape and packed with orange peel, orange blossom and rhubarb on the nose, Contratto Aperitif is one of the finest of its kind on the market today. White stone fruit, marzipan and a soft bitterness comes through on the palate. The gentian flavor is noticeable but delicate, masterfully balanced with the sweetness of this aperitivo.  A GREAT, NATURAL REPLACEMENT FOR APEROL! 13.5% ABV
