From: Piedmont, Italy
The original 19th-century recipe for the Contratto Vermouth Bianco is based on a unique combination of white wine, Italian brandy, and a delicate infusion of more than 50 premium natural herbs, spices, roots, and seeds. The traditional slow, cold maceration process of extraction results in a sophisticated, well-balanced aperitif with a distinctive bouquet and flavor. This Vermouth is delicious served chilled on its own with a twist of lemon, but is also the perfect ingredient in classic and contemporary mixology, turning any cocktail into something special.
