Made to Rossi's original recipe developed in the 1860s, this recipe has been passed down through each of the company's Master Herbalists.
Several aromatic herbs are used, with a large proportion of Italian herbs providing the core flavours.
Wormwood quassia, summer savory and dittany are a few of the main botanicals used for Rosso. Martini Rosso is deep red in colour due to the addition of caramel, and contains 140-150g of sugar per litre.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/02/2013


Clear, red-brown appearance.


Fruity, tobacco nose with bay leaf, aromas and whiffs of what we compare to the strike pad on a box of matches before it has been struck.


Complex, perfumed bitter-sweet palate shows great finesse with notes of tobacco leaf, espresso, cinnamon, liquorice, anise and nutmeg with a fruity note comparable to that found in cola.


Delicate, rich and complex.
