Product description

Made to the same recipe since 1891, this Moscato-based aperitif wine has long been a staple of Asti. While the Americano name implies a gentian focus, the wine also includes quinine and citrus for a flavorful, refreshing profile. The simplest Cocchi Americano cocktails are often the best—just add club soda or sparkling wine. A slice of orange or grapefruit lifts everything up and stimulates the nose and brain. Cocchi has produced wine-based aperitifs and traditional Piemontese sparkling wines since 1891. Giulio Cocchi was a young and creative pastry chef from Florence, where he worked in a popular bar located in Piazza del Duomo. In the late nineteenth century he moved to Asti, a small but lively town in northwest Italy, not far from Torino, and established himself as a distiller and winemaker.

FAQs

Fortified wines are a category that have had distilled spirits added to them during the winemaking process. These include popular dessert wines such as vermouth, sherry, and port.
Our advice is always "drink it when you want to," but typically PX (Pedro Ximenez) sherry is enjoyed with dessert while oloroso, amontillado, and palo cortado can be served with main dishes.
There are five basic types of fortified wine: sherry, port, vermouth, Madeira, and Marsala. Technically, however, any wine that has had neutral spirits added to it can be classified as a fortified wine.
Standard wine is produced from grapes through fermentation in a standard winemaking process, while fortified wines have had distilled spirits added to them either during winemaking or to the finished product. Fortified wines typically have a higher alcohol content than their unfortified counterparts.
It varies by the wine, but most dessert fortified wines fall into the 15-24% ABV range, while unfortified wines have a typical average ABV of 11-16%.
