  • Palette: Incredibly balanced, a sort of half way house between a Bianco and a dry. Sweet lemon peel followed by earthy gentian.
  • Finish: Quite dry and bitter the gentian comes though a lot on the finish
  • Overall: This was a shock to the pallet, such a well balanced product, I wouldn’t say it was my favourite product on the market but is damn close! Well worth a drink or two. I like it alone, chilled with a slice of orange! Don’t stop there though, get mixing with it!

The house of Cocchi (Koh-Kee) is a Torino for many things. In 2011 they revived their house vermouth, resulting in the first genuine Vermouth di Torino. Cocchi Americano is made with a blend of Brachetto and Malvasia grapes, as well as a selection of herbs, fruits and spices with the inclusion of gentian and cinchona.
