Vermouth has always been the flagship product of the Giacomo Sperone company because of its link to the city of Turin (Torino), where the company was founded. This is a re-edition of the original handcrafted formula, dated 1880, and handed down through many generations. It holds exotic notes of herbs, spices and plants including Roman wormwood, cinnamon, nutmeg and licorice. The unique taste and aromas of this Vermouth di Torino are enhanced by a signature blend of red wines from central Italy. Taste it chilled, on the rocks, or as the main ingredient in your favorite cocktail.
The secret recipe concocted by Bernardino is still used to produce the Sperone family’s signature vermouth lines. The newly released Giacomo Sperone Vermouth di Torino is a premium enhancement of the original recipe. Specific herbs and botanicals, including Artemisia (wormwood) grown only in Piedmont have been added, and the infusion is aged in oak for one month before it is blended with a special base of red wines from central Italy. The base wine contributes significantly to the final quality. These extra measures create an elegant, yet intense flavor profile that is delicately sweet and refreshingly bitter. The goal is to let the drinker experience all the basic taste sensations in one glass.
