Launched in November 2016, "Ricetta Originale"- literally 'original recipe' – refers to this pre-mixed Negroni being faithful to the original proportions of 1/3 Campari Bitters, 1/3 sweet vermouth (in this case Cinzano Rosso) and 1/3 London dry gin.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 23/11/2016

Appearance:

Clear, tawny red.

Aroma:

Herbal and rooty with red wine, zesty citrus, pine, quinine, bayleaf and mild spice.

Taste:

Bittersweet and complex with blood orange, pine, herbaceous quinine bitterness, red wine and peppery cinnamon spice.

Aftertaste:

Long, dry lightly bitter finish with bitter zesty orange and peppery spice.

Overall:

Your mixing days are over – simply pour over ice, add a slice of orange or swathe of orange zest, luxuriate and savour. Like a "homemade" Negroni there is no need to go to the trouble of stirring with ice and straining into a glass over fresh ice – indeed this pre-mixed bottled cocktail is better without the added dilution. However, we'd suggest you store your bottle of Campari Negroni in the refrigerator. Consider pouring the bottle into a small oak cask for period of aging before decanting back into the bottle.
