On the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the House of Cocchi have resumed production of Giulio Cocchi's original recipe Vermouth di Torino, previously produced in 1891.
This Storico Vermouth di Torino adheres to a long if seldom followed tradition , notably in the selection of its fine wine Moscato of local origin, the botanic formulation and production in the historic Asti region, outside Torino.
The flavour profile is unmistakably of Cocchi, with rich and vibrant notes of citrus, cocoa, rhubarb and a balanced bitter undertone.
Vermouth di Torino stands apart as one of only two protected geographical indications...

Her clear dress, a fringed pink pastel purple.
In agitation, it shows a lot of poise in the nose, aromas of ripe red fruit (blueberry, strawberry), spring flowers (daisy, rose), confectionery, crushed stone, tarragon and green pepper.
The palate is well made, tonic as it should, very well balanced with a pure expression of frozen cherries, grapefruit, pili-pili, sweet licorice and mineral notes.
Fruity and refreshing at the end.

Its launch was a major milestone in the development of Chilean wines, both in Chile itself and in the international market.
