Cocchi Vermouth Amaro is based on an original recipe created by Giulio Cocchi. As the name suggests, this amaro is based on Barolo Chinatoto wine, rather than a neutral spirit base. It is flavoured with wormwood, rhubarb, quassiawood, chiretta and a double infusion of quina.
Dopo Teatro, meaning 'after theatre', refers the Piedmontese tradition of stopping for a glass of cold vermouth with a lemon zest after leaving the theatres in the centre of Turin.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 26/09/2019

Appearance:

Clear, deep tawny-red with burgundy red glints.

Aroma:

Herbal red berry and red grapes with pine, fur cones, nettles and freshly peeled tree bark.

Taste:

Bittersweet, mulled wine-like. Underlying full-bodied red wine with layers of cinnamon, nutmeg, peppery spice and bone dry quinine, all balanced by honeyed red berry fruit.

Aftertaste:

Long, dry finish with lingering bitter quinine, red wine flavours and tannins.

Overall:

As the name suggests, this is a bitter vermouth - or more accurately, a sweet vermouth with pronounced bitter wormwood notes. It makes for either a great aperitif or digestive.
