Deep maroon red.
Christmas spice and potpourri with black cherry and wormwood.
Pine, liquorice and Cassia spice with star anise freshness and black cherry vinous notes. Floral notes are subtle with lavender most obvious. Quite a thin mouthfeel compared to other rosso vermouths. Perhaps due to reduced sugar levels, at least 20g/l below that of most Italian rosso vermouths.
Dentine chewing gum and cinnamon-like notes from the Cassia bark dominate the spiced vinous cherry finish.
Can't help thinking mulled wine when I sip this pleasingly spicy vermouth.
