Vermouth di Torino Rosso, Antica Torino

Vermouth di Torino Rosso, Antica Torino
  • Sweet Vermouth inspired by the traditional recipes and ingredients of the Piedmont region
  • Primary botanicals include wormwood, rhubarb, gentian, vanilla bean, rosemary, thyme, oregano, laurel leaves, & ginger
  • Base wine is composed of Piedmontese white wines including Bombino, Trebbiano, Freisa, and a small percentage of Moscato, fortified with neutral wheat spirit
  • Botanicals are steeped individually in the neutral grain spirit for 30–45 days, blended with wine and beet sugar, and rested in stainless steel tanks for 45–60 days before filtering and bottling
  • Orange sherbet, fresh rosemary, and cola on the nose; juicy palate of orange & lime zest, vanilla, rhubarb root, and thyme with a lightly smoky, bitter finish
  • 18% ABV
  • This rosso vermouth is robust enough for classic cocktails such as Negronis and Manhattans but avoids a cloying finish, instead lending jeweled fruit tones balanced by stemmy herbs and bright bitterness

Tasting Notes

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
