The summer of 2021 will probably still be a bit different from what we were used to in the past, but that doesn't mean that you cannot enjoy the good life. At iDivini we believe we have developed the perfect drink to give you instant summer vibes: discover our Vermouth Rosso di Torino.
Vermouth is an aromatized fortified wine, flavored with different herbs, seeds or flowers. It's a drink that already exists for centuries and has a long and firm tradition in the Piemonte region.
Usually it is made with an infused white wine, the so called 'Vermouth Bianco'.
To make a red vermouth, or Vermouth Rosso, you can add caramel to your white wine. This is mostly done by large producers. Or you can start from a red wine. This is what we did at iDivini. We used our, in large oak barrels aged, Barbera as a base for our vermouth. Thanks to this well-structured wine, we had a strong base to start from and we did not loose the unique 'wine taste' during the proces. This way we managed to make an elegant layered product.
To be able to ad 'di Torino' to the name of our vermouth, we only used herbs, flowers or spices grown in the Piemonte region. By smelling our vermouth you will at first recognize cinnamon, clove or orange. The list of flavors that we used is much longer, but we prefer to leave that discovery up to you!
Talking about a drink usually makes you want to sip it. But how do you drink a Vermouth Rosso? The answer is as simple as it is diverse. You can drink a vermouth as an aperitive or as a digestive. You can drink it straight, chilled or on the rocks. Or it can be the perfect base for a well balanced cocktail. A Manhattan and a Negroni are probably the most popular vermouth based cocktails.
