ABV

17.5%


Product description

The first Contratto Vermouth recipes date back to the 1890s; though the estate was producing hundreds of thousands of bottles by the 1930s, it was shuttered in the sixties and only recently revived. With recipes older than 100 years and passed on through the generations, Contratto is produced under the watchful eye of notorious La Spinetta winemaker Giorgio Rivetti. The project is committed to elevating the quality of bitter beverages: base distillates and wines are made from estate grapes, grown at Contratto’s UNESCO world heritage site, while botanicals and coloration are 100% all natural (and vegan).

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%.
