Martini & Rossi Extra Dry Vermouth
Martini & Rossi // Italy
Luigi Rossi's sons first started to develop a recipe for this Extra Dry style of vermouth in 1890. After 10 years, it was finally released on New Year's Day in 1900 to ring in the new millennium. Martini & Rossi Extra Dry Vermouth is made with less than 30g/L of sugar. Florentine orris root and raspberries are just two of the over 40 botanicals used in its production. Bottled at 15% ABV.
VermouthVermouth is a type of aromatized wine. It is fortified and flavored with botanicals typically featuring Artemisia absinthium (wormwood) as the primary bittering agent. In the EU, it must be made from 75% wine and its ABV is 14.5-22%. Vermouth styles range from extra dry to sweet.
"Martini & Rossi Extra Dry Vermouth is almost clear in color and has a low intensity on the aroma. Here you'll find cooked vegetables, orange hard candies, and a touch of cedar and dried herbs. The taste is tangy and has a high acidity. The flavor has a lemony finish and is not particularly bitter. Would mix rather than drink on its own."
