Doragrossa Selezioni Vermouth Rosso 1L
A classic Vermouth Rosso, inspired by Piedmont traditions
Doragrossa Selezioni Vermouth Rosso
Turin was once known as the capital of Liqueurs. It's location, surrounded by fertile land, rich in herbs, flowers and fruits, and its closeness to the port of Genoa where marketplaces were overflowing with exotic spices meant that many artisans gathered in the Contrada (district or quarter) Dora Gross and developed increasingly refined techniques and trades.
It's this nod to history, which is reflected in their name, and the botanicals they use which makes Doragrossa unique. Their Selezioni range of vermouth, bitter and gin were created to enable the creation of the most popular Italian drinks. These drinks are made for mixing, but flavourful enough to also be enjoyed neat.
At the end of the 18th Century fortified wines (Vermouths) were growing in popularity around the world. It was later on that the Rosso versions became popular.
This has an enticing aroma of absinthe, and citrus fruits. The palate is complex, with honts of ginger, cinnamon, angelica and orange. These join with bitterness from chamomile, gentian, rhubarb and cinchiona. It is rounded out with sweet notes of vanilla.
More from Doragrossa
Whilst this is easily enjoyed as an aperitif or digestif - we love this in an Italian Negroni (it was made for mixing after all!).
Take a rocks glass and add a few cubes of ice. Add 25ml of Doragrossa Gin, 25ml of Doragrossa Bitter and 25ml of Doragrossa Sweet Vermouth. Gently stir, and garnish with a slice or two of orange. Delicious!
