Vermuth Rosso, Berto 100cl

£30.00
Vermuth Rosso, Berto 100cl

Slow aging in steel gives the vermouth a surprising garnet colour, with an amber glint. The classic italian vermouth sweet and bitter flavours appear on the nose and are elegantly supported by hints of vanilla and citrus. The finesse of this drink presents itself beautifully in an initial soft, alcoholic embrace on the palate, with flavours of mandarin, citrus peel, liquorice, white pepper and Christmas spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Despite these warming, comforting flavours, the Berto Rosso is also fresh and zingy enough to work as an apertivo. The finish is long and fulfilling with a rich aftertaste of sweetness and bitterness in balance. 

As an aperitivo, the Vermouth Berto Rosso is best served in tumblers with ice and orange peel. It is also exceptional to drink at room temperature with any chocolate and hazelnut dessert; cheese are stunning pairings.

Piedmont
Piedmont region map

Provenance: Piedmont

Piedmont is in Italy's northwest and borders Switzerland and France. True to the meaning of its name (foot of the mountain), Piedmont is a land of mountains. It is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, with the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy.

Monviso, the Piedmont side of Monte Rosa and the other spectacular mountains in the region, create incredibly beautiful landscapes, and ski resorts abound: Via Lattea and Sestriere welcome winter sports enthusiasts with their state-of-the-art facilities.

The Alps form the background for sweeping, picturesque valleys, e.g. the Val di Susa, Valsesia and Val d'Ossola. The landscapes of the Langhe and Monferrato are hilly, rather, but just as beautiful, a succession of cultivated hills and vineyards that are dotted with small towns and castles.

Expanses of water and rice paddies, long rows of poplars and old farmhouses make up the typical scenery of the plains around Novara and Vercelli. Lake Maggiore is the most sought-after tourist resort, including Stresa and the Borromean Islands, charming as they are with their ancient villas surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens.

Yet nature is only one of the many attractions in Piedmont. This region has many other facets: from Turin — the Italian car manufacturing capital – with its history and remarkable cultural heritage, to other cities such as Cherasco, Alba and Ivrea.

Next up are the intriguing Medieval castles — like the imposing fortress at Ivrea, and prized works of architecture — the famous Residences of the Royal House of Savoy and the Sacri Monti (Sacred Mountains) certainly deserve to be mentioned. The famous spa resorts of Acqui Terme and Vinadio offer treatments and therapy for a relaxing, reviving holiday. Discoveries and surprises of all kinds are in store for visitors to the region, including a wide range of food and wine to suit every palate.

The region’s provinces are: Turin (regional capital), Alessandria, Asti, Biella, Cuneo, Novara, Verbano Cusio Ossola and Vercelli.
