In a Nutshell
High Quality white vermouth perfect for summer cocktails!
A wonderful fruity character initially - ripe and fleshy with notes of banana, the unique blend of herbs and botanicals then kicks in giving that traditional vermouth dryness. Great over ice or mix with tonic for a refreshing long drink.
The original recipe from the early 19th century for Contratto Vermouth is based on a combination of white wine fortified with Italian brandy and more than 50 delicately infused premium natural herbs, spices, roots and seeds. Today's recipe is true to the historic methods with a small tweak to flavourings for a modern palate.
Founded in 1867, Contratto was the first winery in Italy to make vintage ‘Metodo Classico’ sparkling wine and in the 1920’s and 1930’s, it was the Contratto bubbles that were requested by the Vatican and the royal houses of Europe.
