Vermouth 18/70 is an excellent expression of Dogliotti’s goal: with a base of Moscato d’Asti, which gives it an incredible aromatic profile and determines the natural residual sugar, they have added a new line of Vermouth to their products. The result is the fruit of decades of ever more refined experimentation in the cellar, a Vermouth that is faithful to Turin’s tradition but has a modern twist. The distinctive mark of the 18/70 is its natural sweetness, which comes from naturally-occurring sugars of the moscato. No sugars or colorants are added, and its alcohol grade is low.
The transparent glass bottle shows off the characteristic, bright golden tones of moscato. On the nose, it’s delicate, expressive, and elegant. Like a typical Vermouth, its aromatic notes mingle with spices and herbs, particularly absinthe; and light fruity, floral, and citrus notes. Tasting it is a continual evolution in sensations: it is intriguing and inviting. In the mouth, it’s rich and full-bodied. An initial sweetness is balanced with its fine, acidic structure and final bitter taste.
Vermouth 18/70 is perfect for aperitivo for its elegant, fine characteristics. Its flavors are exalted both neat or on the rocks, garnished with lemon. It is also perfect for cocktails; the combinations are endless, from the classic Americano to the creative inventions of international barmen around the globe.
