Vino Chinato, Antica Torino

Vino Chinato, Antica Torino
  • Vino Chinato, a fortified wine produced in the style of a Barolo Chinato
  • Made with Langhe Nebbiolo DOP 2018 from Luigi Voghera; fortified with neutral wheat distillate
  • Featured botanicals include cinchona, wormwood, gentian, elderflower, rhubarb, bay leaves, chamomile, marjoram, cinnamon, vanilla, coriander, rose, and nutmeg
  • Aromas of mulled wine and dried rose petals give rise to a palate of prominent cinchona bitterness and gentian-inspired citrus pith. This sharp bite subsides for a long and deep finish of nutmeg, allspice, and Mexican chocolate; long after, the gentian returns for one last curtain call.
  • 18% ABV
  • Barolo Chinato is a venerated category of Piedmontese spirit that stylistically sits between a vermouth and an amaro. Certified DOCG Barolo wine provides the base, which is heavily flavored with cinchona, spices, sugar, herbs, and other botanicals. Antica Torino has created their take on a classic chinato with the utmost respect for the category, creating a suitably rich and complex expression that can be enjoyed after dinner, as is traditionally done, or utilized as a compelling cocktail component.
