Product description

In Cocchi Americano Rosa, the Brachetto d’Acqui wine base provides the white rose and rich berry notes typical of the famous sparkling wine of the same variety, while the addition of rose and ginger to the traditional bitter base provides a rounder profile. The simplest Cocchi Rosa cocktails are often the best—just add club soda or sparkling wine. These drinks are all-purpose aperitifs—great with salty snacks, particularly Parmigiano-Reggiano! 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.

    I bought this because I was attempting to be adventurous. But if you don’t like the taste of cherry grenadine keep moving. Very thick and syrup like. Try something else…

    Long time fan of this very special Italian treat. It's perfect with soda and an orange peel for summer patio tails, or adds an unexpected light/floral balance to manhattans or negronis.

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%.
