"Cocchi Storico Vermouth di Torino has a bright, medium amber color and an intense aroma of fruitcake, cola, and menthol. It has a moderately sweet profile, but its acidity lifts the vermouth up. The bitter notes are present, but don't take over the tangy, sweet profile. Feel free to drink with the cheese course at the end of a meal. "
