This artisanal vermouth is named after and formulated to a recipe by Italian bartender Giancarlo Mancino using 37 botanicals including angelica, chamomile, elderflower, gentian, quinine, mint, ginger, cardamom, liquorice, sweet orange and pink grapefruit peel.

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.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 18/03/2024

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden with faint green tinge.

Aroma:

Floral chamomile and elderflower with herbaceous mint, orange and grapefruit zest. Faint whiffs of ashtray and hairspray but attractively so.

Taste:

Sweet, honeyed chamomile balances bitter wormwood. Zingy orange and pink grapefruit zest with light clove and cinnamon spice.

Aftertaste:

Honeyed chamomile and liquorice sweetness are superseded by bitter pine, wormwood and lingering pink grapefruit zest.

Overall:

This bittersweet vermouth starts with honeyed richness and then veers towards the bitter side. Very generously flavoured.
