Organic red vermouth wine
This is one of the most interesting and typical Italian fine wines. Traditional spellings of its name include Vermouth, Wermouth, or Wermuth. The origin of the name is uncertain, although in general it is related to the German Wermuth, “wormwood” (Arthemisia absinthium). Its fame originated in Piedmont and is owed to Antonio Benedetto Carpano, who first produced it in 1786 and “launched” it in his shop in the heart of Turin. In 1838 the brothers Giuseppe and Luigi Cora first exported it. By the end of the nineteenth century, Vermouth was widely exported to South America, the United States and all of Europe.
The aromatic herbs and spices are carefully selected and wisely dosed before they are infused in alcohol. The main aromas include, among others, Common Wormwood, Roman Wormwood, Coriander seeds, Bay leaves, Chamomile flowers, Cinnamon, Ginger root, Angelica root, Clove, Nutmeg, Bitter Orange peel, Gentian root, Nettle leaves, Sweet Orange peel, Carob pods, Juniper, Rhubarb root, Iris, Clary Sage, Red Cinchona, Lemon peel, Elderflower, Bergamot peel, Liquorice root, Cretan Dittany inflorescence, etc. The extracts thus obtained are added to our Gavi DOCG, together with sugar and caramel.
