Vermouth Rosso Antica Torino tasting notes and review
The vermouth fever does not stop, in fact, we are in the eye of the storm with new bottles that come out every day.
And today we are going to speak about a great wine: Vermouth Rosso Antica Torino.
It is a very elegant and sumptuous sweet vermouth, refined, with rich hints of roots, licorice, and alpine herbs, but fabulous balance.
Its greatest virtue is moderate sweetness, it is not cloying and above all, this roundness in the mouth is not intrusive and never static, but well blended in the general structure of this vermouth.
Too often there is an unbalanced, awkward sweetness in red vermouth, disunited from the general body, put there just to keep everything together.
Instead in this Vermouth Rosso Antica Torino, the sweetness lurks in the background, acts as an altar for a range of delicious bitter flavors.
If you are looking for a firm and rigorous sweet vermouth you have found it. But let’s go to the tasting notes.

Dense and deep mouth, dictated by a pursuit of well-declined bitter and sweet flavors, integrated into a robust body, with an agile step that stings like a bee. The sweetness is there, it is caressing and it’s the ideal sidekick of a nice saltiness.
In conclusion, it is a complex, full-bodied vermouth, characterized by finesse, balance and a splendid persistence, but never difficult to decipher.
