This artisanal vermouth is named after and formulated to a recipe by Italian bartender Giancarlo Mancino using 19 botanicals including sage, marjoram and oregano, lemon grass, dog rose, pimento, nutmeg and orris root and based on a Trebbiano di Romagna wine.

In 2011 Giancarlo started working with a small family run distillery in Piedmont to make his vermouths. The botanicals are ground in a traditional mill in use since the 1930's and then steeped in sugar beet neutral spirit before being blended with a Trebbiano di Romagna wine base. After a week-long filtration process, the liquid rests for six months prior to bottling. The town pictured on the bottle's label is inspired by Giancarlo's home town of Pignola, Italy.
