1757 Vermouth di Torino Rosso
Words by Vic Arkoff
Vermouth is an unsung hero, vital to the bartender arsenal when they need the good stuff like 1757 Vermouth di Torino Rosso for top-shelf Negronis and Americanos. Nearly 300 years of experience go into 1757, the plum-red aperitif that salutes Casa Cinzano’s founding year. Rated 94 by Wine Spectator for its mature aromatics.
Vermouth di Torino – Rosso (red) and Extra Dry (white) – is inspired by the apothecary techniques used in the original 1757 Torino bottega of Cinzano’s founders, brothers Giovanni Giacomo and Carlo Stefano, who started their business in Torino, Italy. Intensely rich, the full-bodied flavors enhance classic cocktails like the oh-so-Italian Americano.
