In 2014 it was the overall winner in the fortified wines category and in the sweet vermouth subcategory at the BBA ‘London Bartender’s Best Award’. At the start of 2015, the Drinks International World’s Best Bars Brands Report awarded Vermouth Cocchi, second place in the best solding the 50 best bars in the world’ category.
Andreas Larsson, world Best Sommelier in 2007, describes Storico Vermouth di Torino:
“Quite deep golden colour, with a hint of almost something brown towards amber. Intense nose, and this is not a normal wine, it’s rather a Vermouth style, it’s flavoured; but I think for that it has a good complexity. We have those herbs, licorice, dry wood, cedar, tobacco, in combination with quite sweet candied honeyed fruit. Palate has a quite high sweetness, but I think that’s well-tempered by that bitterness we have in here, and those bitter spices, bitter herbs giving a good lift, good grip. Quite long sweet finish with grapey candied fruit, but it finishes off in a dry style. It’s a flavoured wine and I wouldn’t call myself a specialist in judging this, but I think it’s a very nice traditional style in that Northern Italian Vermouth style. Very fun”.
