Vermouth Rosso, Contratto
The first Contratto Vermouth recipes date back to the 1890s; though the estate was producing hundreds of thousands of bottles by the 1930s, it was shuttered in the sixties and only recently revived. With recipes older than 100 years and passed on through the generations, Contratto is produced under the watchful eye of notorious La Spinetta winemaker Giorgio Rivetti. The project is committed to elevating the quality of bitter beverages: base distillates and wines are made from estate grapes, grown at Contratto’s UNESCO world heritage site, while botanicals and coloration are 100% all natural (and vegan).

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.
