Literally fit for a king, Riserva Carlo Alberto vermouths are said to originate from a recipe made for King Carlo Alberto (1831 to 1849), the King of the small state of Piedmont-Sardinia in the House of Savoy in 1837. The regal recipe passed to a vintner, Tumalin Baracco Bartolomé de Baracho, who named the vermouth after the king and started commercial production.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/02/2014


Clear, pale golden.


Pungent and herbal - sage, thyme and cloves with lime zest, gentian and cinnamon.


Dry and herbal with zesty citrus. As with the nose sage, thyme and cloves are most dominant. Bitter orange zest with flavours reminiscent of lime cordial.


Bitter herbal notes, particularly sage lingers.
