Yuck, sorry- was looking for a dry/bitter aperitif wine to make a Vesper or Corpe Reviver and this just tastes like cheap chardonnay mixed with a ton of simple syrup or honey. And I do mean a TON. It smells nice, but is undrinkably sweet, cloying, and ultimately very one-dimensional. Not sure what all the hype is about Cocchi(?)
Dessert & Fortified Wine /16.5% ABV / Italy
Cocchi Americano means much more to Asti than a simple wine made with the infusion of herbs and spices. An aperitif par excellence. Cocchi's is widely regarded as the original Aperitivo Americano, and has been made continuously since 1891 using only natural ingredients. To aromatise the white wine a secret blend of herbs and spices, to name a few, gentian, cinchona and bitter orange peels, are added to the wine base which is then steeped over a period of time. In recent years Cocchi Americano has become a cult product in the circle of best sommelier and bartenders of the world.View all products by CocchiCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Perfect for my Vesper Martini!

Versatile and tasty. As a professional bar tender, I use this instead of a dry vermouth in most of my recipes.

The essential ingredient for the vesper cocktail

Maybe even better than the current Lillet, a great mixer that doesn't water down a great cocktail..if I wanted a 'spritzer' I'd make one! I have been perusing old cocktail recipes like Aviation and French everything circa 1940's..a friend gave me the name of this wine with spirits and herbs added..phenomenal!
