Riserva La Venaria Reale

Riserva La Venaria Reale is the new vermouth, created in the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Giulio Cocchi winery.
It is a vermouth in the style of the former kingdom of Piemonte, result of an unique partnership with Reggia di Venaria and released, in this first edition, in 1891 bottles only.
Recipe, selection of botanicals, long maturation: every element has been carefully reasoned and selected for historical and geographical consistency.
Cocchi Vermouth Riserva La Venaria Reale has, in fact, a strong local identity – Piedmontese wine, erbs from the Alps – and historical identity, recalling the essential role played by the House of Savoy in the diffusion of the modern Vermouth.

Characteristics

The peculiar style of Cocchi Vermouths makes them identifiable for their strong personality, for the intensity of their floral freshness and spicy fragrances and for their richness of flavors.
The Cocchi Riserva is the culmination of this style that emphasizes the richness and aromatic density of spices with a six months refinement in the bottle.
“Reserve” does not mean aging in barrels, which would affect the complex aromatic balance in favor of oxidation and tannin components, but the valorization of the formula and the savoir faire in production.
As in Cocchi Storico Vermouth di Torino, the wine used is a dry muscat, aromatized with a formula particularity rich in Artemisia, Rhubarb, Alpine herbs and a touch of Piedmontese mint.
This composition accentuates the pleasant balsamic effect and gives a surprising freshness, to the point that this product could also be perfectly mixed with aged Rye of Bourbon.

How to drink

Dark amber in color but without caramel in its formula, Cocchi Riserva La Venaria Reale is sweet enoght to be enjoyed pure with ice and lemon peel, or by itself as a digestive.
