Luigi Calissano Vermouth di Torino Bianco Superiore
Luigi Calissano's Vermouth di Torino Bianco Superiore is an emblematic tribute to the grand tradition of Italian vermouth crafting. Born in the heart of Turin, a city with a storied history of vermouth production, this Bianco Superiore captures the delicate balance between aromatic complexity and refreshing sweetness.
Nose: The aromatic journey begins with an inviting burst of fragrant botanicals. Notes of chamomile, lemon peel, and subtle hints of wormwood come to the fore. This is supported by an underlying sweetness reminiscent of honeyed fruits and an ever-so-light whisper of vanilla.
Palate: Delicately sweet, the Bianco Superiore caresses the palate with layers of complexity. Citrusy undertones are complemented by richer flavors of ripe stone fruits. The medley of herbs and spices, including sage, rosemary, and perhaps a touch of anise, provide a tantalizing depth. The wine's fortification adds a warmth that binds these flavors together, creating a harmonious blend that is both invigorating and soothing.
Finish: Smooth and lasting, the finish leaves behind a lingering sweetness paired with the nuanced bitterness of select botanicals, making for a refreshing and contemplative aftertaste.
With its intricate balance of sweet and bitter, Luigi Calissano's Vermouth di Torino Bianco Superiore is versatile for pairing. Enjoy it as an aperitif, served over ice with a twist of lemon or orange. For food, consider pairing with salty appetizers, such as olives, salted nuts, or even a plate of rich cheeses. It also shines when paired with lighter seafood dishes or fried appetizers. And of course, it's an impeccable choice for crafting sophisticated cocktails that demand the finest vermouth.
