Tasting Notes

More structured than most biancos out there, Contratto’s Vermouth Bianco has an integrated bitterness from wormwood and gentian with plenty of zesty herbs, spices and citrus to make this bianco stand out. Bold, bright and balanced, Contratto Bianco Vermouth is the perfect aperitif for sipping and mixing into classic and modern cocktails.
