Vermouth di Torino Extra Dry Piemontese: the new vermouth from Cocchi
A vermouth with a classic style, formulated and produced in the Italian cradle of flavored wines, Piedmont.
Cocchi Vermouth di Torino Extra Dry, presented for the first time at the Athens Bar Show 2021, on the occasion of the 130th anniversary of Giulio Cocchi, is based on a “Ricetta Piemontese” (“Piedmontese Recipe”, as highlighted on the label): a strong and precise characterization for this aromatized wine, since the main ingredients are all Piedmontese, or have a solid link with the region.
The wine used is a Cortese, the same used for Gavi Docg; Artemisia Absinthium is 100% from Piemonte mountains. The aromatic profile is characterized by Menta di Pancalieri – a local variety of peppermint – and lemon traditionally used in the garnish of vermouth in our region.
Using a delicious base wine made of local Cortese grapes and botanicals such as wormwood, angelica, coriander and cardamom as well as lemon peel and Piedmontese mint give a fragrant and perfectly balanced flavour.
The Cocchi Extra Dry proudly carries the “Vermouth di Torino” appellation. which includes it in the renewed denomination of Vermouth di Torino, protected since 2017 by a specific production disciplinary.
Vermouth di Torino is a collective heritage of the Piedmontese, which historically had the first promotion center in the royal court of the Savoy and which, in particular from the end of the 18th century, generated a flourishing industry that made Piedmont the Kingdom of Vermouth .
Cocchi’s Vermouth di Torino Extra Dry “Ricetta Piemontese” enriches the Vermouth family of the company: the Storico Vermouth di Torino, the Vermouth Amaro “Dopo Teatro”, the limited edition of the Riserva La Venaria Reale and that of the Vermouth di Torino Dry, developed years ago in collaboration with the head bartenders of the Savoy’s American Bar in London.
Cocchi Extra Dry is an extremely elegant stand-alone vermouth with fresh apple, melon and white flower notes from the wine beautifully balance with the aromatic botanicals of cardamom, wormwood, coriander and angelica. The Piedmontese mint and lemon peels bring herbaceous notes and brightness to the palate, creating a unique personality.
