Tasting Notes

A 100% certified organic vermouth made naturally by two Italians in Spain. Trained as architects, Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerona moved from Barcelona to Massís de Bonastre and began organically farming abandoned vineyards filled with old vines of local varieties. A blend of multiple styles of red and white wine and a mix of botanicals from a Torino based herbalist the vermut comes in at a lower abv than typical with the elevated acidity lending extra lift to the perfumed spices on the aroma and refreshing cut on the palate. An extremely drinkable everyday style of fortified wine.

This is unfortified and unsulfured (so store in the fridge), which allows for the pure, natural base wine to shine. It's bright and lightly fruity with a delicate sweetness and notes of orange peel, clove, rose petal, and herbs. You'll be glad this comes in a liter-sized bottle.
