Vermouth di Torino Rosso, 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 tradition and enlivened by the Piedmontese spirit. After formulating their flagship Antica Torino Rosso vermouth, the team turned their attention to creating an amaro comprised of ingredients from both Piedmont and around the world, and now brings us a dry vermouth that could only be created through painstaking research and a fervent passion for heritage spirits.
Spirit Sub Type:
Rather than seeking out the exotic, often imported botanicals that go into more modern styled gins and vermouth of Italy, Antica Torino takes a page out of the history books, a time when vermouth was created utilizing what was readily available in the backyard. The decision was made to produce a vermouth that was “of the garden,” packed with fresh rosemary, bay laurel, thyme, oregano, wormwood, gentian, rhubarb and more… As for the grapes, they troubleshot through different combinations, and tested both white and red varieties from Piedmont. They decided to go with white wines, including a small percentage of moscato (also of the region) for its floral elements. For color, burnt cane sugar was chosen rather than industrial caramel. Delicious on its own or mixed into cocktails, Antica Torino Vermouth di Torino will be a wonderful addition to any home or professional bar! No colorants, clarifying agents, or artificial preservatives added. 18% ABV
