This is a Vino Chinato, a fortified wine produced in the style of a Barolo Chinato made with Langhe Nebbiolo from Luigi Voghera; fortified with neutral wheat distillate. Featured botanicals include cinchona, wormwood, gentian, elderflower, rhubarb, bay leaves, chamomile, marjoram, cinnamon, vanilla, coriander, rose, and nutmeg. Aromas of mulled wine and dried rose petals give rise to a palate of prominent cinchona bitterness and gentian-inspired citrus pith w/ a long and deep finish of nutmeg, allspice, and Mexican chocolate. 18% ABV
Barolo Chinato is a respected category of Piedmontese spirit that stylistically sits between a vermouth and an amaro. Certified DOCG Barolo wine provides the base, which is heavily flavored with cinchona, spices, sugar, herbs, and other botanicals. Antica Torino has created their take on a classic chinato with the utmost respect for the category, creating a suitably rich and complex expression that can be enjoyed after dinner, as is traditionally done.
