Analysis

Nothing beats the original. Commercial, repeatable Vermouth was created by Antonio Benedetto Carpano in 1786. The idea of blending wine with herbs and spices with wine goes back centuries but Carpano was the first to record it and sell it. The base wine is a blend of Trebbiano, Chardonnay, and Cortese grapes grown in Sicily and Romagna. The wine is then infused with a secret blend of herbs and spices.

How to Enjoy

The Carpano Bianco is a great addition to a classic Martini but it's also great served solo on ice or perhaps with a portion of soda.
