Based on Mancino Rosso Amaranto, an artisanal vermouth formulated to a recipe by Italian bartender Giancarlo Mancino using 38 botanicals. This sweet vermouth is aged in a single Italian oak cask for one year to produce this Veichio (old/aged) version of the vermouth.

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.
