Tasting Notes

Slightly lower in sugar and alcohol than its bianco counterpart, Contratto’s Vermouth Rosso has quickly established itself as one of the apertivi and modifier of choice amongst the bartending elite. Herbaceous, sweet, acidic and more pronounced in its bitter character than many of the competing sweet vermouths.
