Casa Martelletti is better known for its Cocconato d'Asti sparkling wines and grappa but has recently launched this very classically styled Vermouth di Torino. It is based on Piemonte muscat wine, infused with more than 20 different herbs and spices to an original recipe from 1700.

Ingredients include Roman absinthe from the Aosta Valley, yellow saffron, Indian turmeric root, aloe, Ethiopian myrrh, bourbon vanilla, Ligurian bitter oranges, Ceylon Cinnamon from Sri Lanka, and Chinese Rhubarb.

The screen-printed bottle is sealed with a driven cork rather than a stopper so requiring a corkscrew to open.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/07/2011


Clear, golden-brown-amber with golden highlights.


Fresh grape, fig and raison aromas are immediately apparent on the nose with very delicate cinnamon and nutmeg spice.


A big palate sees dried fruit, ripe fruit and fig and raison fruit flavours balanced by bitter/sour and acidic notes and warm Christmas spice.


Spicy notes grow into the finish with quinine-like dryness and orange zestyness.
