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.

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma:

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

Taste:

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.

Aftertaste:

Bitter herbal notes, particularly sage lingers.
