Full Body, Fruity Vermouth* (fortified wine) made from Moscato, Grillo and botanicals, by Archivio** in connection with our biodynamic winery Tasi of Veneto. Alc 18%.
A quaffable, delicate Vermouth with a nice balance of sweetness and savoury (herbal) notes.
NOTES: Produced at the historic Antica Distilleria Quaglia in Castenuovo Don Bosco, Piedmonte, by the modern vermouth master, Federico Ricatto, Volume Primo is a fresh, Mediterranean-styled Vermouth. A blend of 95% Moscato d'Asti and 5% Grillo Siciliano renders this fortified wine soft and fruity. The majority of its herbs come from Distilleria Quaglia's own botanic fields, located in the hills of Asti. In addition to the classic bittering elements of wormwood & gentian, a list of botanicals including fresh thyme, sage, knapwood, chamomile, licorice root, and a touch of vanilla expand, sweeten, and deepen this beautiful dram. Grape must, a touch of sugar, and caramel provide VOLUME PRIMO body minus a cloying finish.
FROM THE MAKERS: "The idea of Archivio's two Veronese bartenders, Raffaele & Tommaso, was to produce a versatile vermouth for their bar program and beyond. While MULTIPLE other vermouths are readily available, many are too sweet, too bitter, or too balsamic in character. Raffaele & Tommaso set out to produce a balanced vermouth, from quality ingredients, with mixability and quaffability in mind, in a good package and with a good price."
* Vermouth - an aromatized, fortified wine, flavoured with botanicals - originated in north Italy (Turin area) back in the 18th century. Demand soared as it became a staple ingredient for many popular cocktails, especially aperitifs such as the Martini, the Manhattan and the Negroni.
** "the bar Archivio is nestled off of the Piazza Della Erbe, in VERONA, in the bend of the Adige River. Patrons spill out onto the narrow cobblestone streets, Americanos & Negronis in hand, smoking bogies, awaiting la luna. The atmosphere & cocktails are intoxicating!"
