The latest product by Dogliotti 1870 is making its debut on the market – Vermouth 18/70. Noticeable for its trendy packaging, this vermouth nonetheless has deep ties to the traditions of Turin and the historical recipe that has made vermouth famous worldwide.
Vermouth 18/70, 14.5%abv has a base of Moscato d’Asti, which gives it an aromatic profile and determines the natural residual sugar. It is 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 grape. No sugars or colorants are added, and its alcohol grade is low.
The 75cl 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, with light fruity, floral, and citrus notes. 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 – neat or on the rocks, garnished with lemon, or in cocktails - from the classic Americano to the creative inventions of international barmen around the globe.
