Vermouth di Torino Dry, Antica Torino

Antica Torino is the brainchild and longtime passion project of Liguria-based wine & spirits huntsman, Vittorio Zoppi, and Umbrian winemaker Filippo Antonelli. Vito’s love for Italian spirits began as it does for many in Italy—as a child surrounded by the time-honored traditions and legacies of regional drinking culture. By sampling and studying a wide variety of vermouth and digestivi from around the world, Antica Torino has endeavored to create refined recipes inspired by the traditions of Torino and enlivened by the Piedmontese spirit. After formulating their flagship Rosso Vermouth, the team turned their attention to (re)creating an increasing collection of heritage spirits, using ingredients from both Piedmont and around the world, coupled with painstaking research and an abiding love for the drinking traditions of Italy.

Tasting Notes

Torino Dry Vermouth was inspired by a rediscovered 1950’s recipe entitled “extract for dry vermouth.” Among the botanicals are wormwood, yarrow muscat, centaurea, hyssop, thistle, cinnamon, coriander, and sage, expertly balancing both mountain and garden herbs. Maceration of each ingredient occurs separately and once joined, the mixture is partially distilled and rested in steel vats. The base for Antica Torino Dry is Cortese DOC wine from Piedmont that renders a particularly elegant, floral, and vinous vermouth. Enjoy Antica Torino Dry on the rocks with a twist of lemon or in bold classics such as an Old Pal or a Perfect Rob Roy. 18% ABV
