Del Professore, Vermouth di Torino Superiore
Based on a single vineyard Barolo wine from producer Ettore Germano. Once the wine is finished ageing and could be bottled as Barolo, it is further aged with a blend of herbs and spices for 3 to 6 months. The proprietary blend used to flavour this vermouth includes wormwood, rhubarb, vanilla, chincona, and cloves. Another level of complexity for vermouth with a fine and elegant tannic structure.
With the Vermouth Rosso, the aim was to recreate the most popular style of vermouth in Italian history using Nebbiolo wine as a base. Del Professore insists that this ensures the intensity and authenticity of the aromas within the vermouth as they oversee the whole process from grape and herbs to the finished product. The final blend is rested for several months in wood barriques � exactly how long depends on the seasons. They patiently wait to ensure the flavours have married harmoniously before bottling.�
