Our fifth wine selection is a vermouth, one of the oldest beverages in the world. It was invented by Hippocrates in 430 B.C. macerating various herbs, especially wormwood, with the wine. Greeks, Egyptians and Romans drank it for its medicinal properties.
This vermouth has been selected from a very small producer in Cenicero (La Rioja), following an antique recipe handed down from father to son. It still maintains the original wormwood taste that is no longer available in nowadays vemouths.
This wine has a great intensity and aromatic complexity, which includes notes of wormwood, cinnamon and citrus, and the taste is less sweet than other common vermouths. It is a very fresh and easy to drink vermouth.
This vermouth has a base wine preparation from Viura, Malvasia and White Garnacha in stainless steel tanks. Then it is fortificated up to 15% and maceration with different herbs like wormwood, cinnamon, orange and lemon peels, elderflower, cardamom and gentian, and sweetened with brown sugar.
