 Tamlyn Currin writes:  There is something rather special about Barolo Chinato vermouth. Rather like an intense raspberry and cherry liqueur with a salt-and-lemon-pith tang and bite. The bitterness is built into the sweetness like bones into flesh, citrus shaping the flesh into lines and parabolas of Seville marmalade, candied clementine peel, dried mandarin, salt-pickled lemon, fragrant-fresh yuzu. Iron and cherry blossom, sandalwood and violets, matcha and lavender syrup. Long, and more vinous than most vermouths.   - Jancis Robinson 18

Renowned in Piemonte since its introduction in 1891, Cocchi Barolo Chinato is a wine of DOCG Barolo infused with quinine bark, rhubarb, ginger, cardamom, cocoa, and a variety of other aromatic spices. Round and rich, yet with the deep back palate one expects of Barolo, this wine possesses the definition necessary to be an ideal digestif or pairing with dark chocolate. Serve as you would a high-quality port or Madeira, or use in lieu of sweet red vermouth in a luxurious Manhattan. You would not be alone in finding this to be the Rolls Royce (or Maserati) of Italian dessert wines.
