Americano Bianco (Aperitivo) (Cocchi, Giulio)

Giulio Cocchi, Americano Bianco (Aperitivo), Piemonte, Italy NV

Moscato & Herbs (Gentian, Cinchona & Citrus)

16.5% ABV

Giulio Cocchi's original recipe Americano is more than just a simple aperitif in the town of Asti - in fact, it is the aperitif by definition, a piece of this century's local cultural and gastronomic history. This is the original Americano, produced without a break since 1891 according to an entirely natural recipe: white wine aromatized with many herbs and spices, no artificial coloring, flavoring or additive of any kind.

It is produced in limited quantities and matured for a year before being put on sale. The new bottle in that form of the classic clear glass Bordeaux shape is designed to be show the aperitif's natural origins as a wine, quite different to other inventive aperitifs based on alcohol.

Serve chilled in a tumbler or in an appropriate glass with a twist of orange peel and if desired, ice cubes. A splash of soda is indispensable to make the full aroma and perfume come out at their best. This is the classic way to serve it, as preferred by the "purists" who have known this drink forever. Outside of Italy it is revered as one of last great blanc/bianco aperitif wines, essential to a wide range of classic mixed drinks.

Americano Rosa (Aperitivo) (Cocchi, Giulio)

Giulio Cocchi, Americano Rosa (Aperitivo), Piemonte, Italy NV

Malvasia & Brachetto, Herbs (Gentian, Cinchona & Citrus)

16.5% ABV

ROSE & WILDFLOWERS, TANGY RASPBERRY, FRESH HERBS

We had heard fleeting rumors of this hard-to-find rosé version of the Aperitivo Americano., but we couldn't track it down here in NC. We spotted a bottle on a trip to San Francisco and took it out to a sunny spot in the mountains with some blood oranges and club soda...and now we can't live without it. So perfectly tangy and refreshing, with a satisfyingly soft bitterness. We're smitten.

Serving Suggestion: In a tumbler with ice and club soda, with a twist of the aforementioned blood orange. Or just on its own.

Americano Rosso (Aperitivo) (Cappelletti)

Americano Rosso (Aperitivo)

Antica Erboristeria Cappelletti

Trento, Alto Adige, Italy NV

CITRUS & HERBS, GENTLE SWEETNESS, PLEASANTLY BITTER

While this is a recent addition to the U.S. shelf, it's one of the oldest wine based aperitifs from Trento in Italy's Alpine north.  Made with Trebbiano & Cochinea with infusions of citrus and herbs by the same family for over 4 generations, the Cappelletti Americano (derived from "amer" meaning bitter) is referred to as "specialino" by the locals and is about as ubiquitous a happy hour libation in the Treveneto as Prosecco!

Serving Suggestion: Use in a classic Negroni or Venetian Spritz...or really take it to outerspace and mix with reposado tequila, coffee liquor, and Mole bitters..."Nanu Nanu!"

Grand Quinquina {aperitif} (Byrrh, Caves)

Caves Byrrh, Grand Quinquina (Apéritif), Thuir, France

Various Red Varietals (mainly Grenache, Carignan, and Muscat), mistelles, chinchona, other herbs & spices

18% ABV

RASPBERRY, BITTER ORANGE, QUININE, SPICED COCOA, HERBS

The Violet brothers, Pallade and SImon, first concocted their recipe for a chinchona-based apéritif in 1866, inspired by the popularity of quinine-based tonics made from from the medicinal plant entrusted to Europeans by the Quechua indians of Peru. Byrrh began to reappear on mirrored bar shelves in 2012 thanks to the "wine archaeologists" at Haus Alpenz. With a gentle sweetness that offsets its complex blend of quinine, citrus peel, bitter herbs and cocoa, Byrrh is further matured in oak, which mellows its flavors and gives it a comforting warmth.

Serving Suggestions: Straight with a twist of lemon, on the rocks alone or with a splash of soda and an orange wedge, or blended into a cocktail with Armagnac and the mixer of your choice.

Vermut "Priorat Natur" (Buil & Gine)

Buil & Gine, Vermut "Priorat Natur", Vermut, Spain, NV

Macabeo, Pedro Ximenez, Garnacha Blanca

CARAMELIZED HAZELNUT, GENTLE BITTERNESS, SWEET SPICES

Due to its high average temperatures, Priorat is mostly known for its powerful red wines. As our friend Andoni says, “Making good white wine in Priorat is like trying to grow a flower in hell.” Whoa. Luckily, the winemakers of Buil & Gine have succeeded not only in producing incredible white wine, but have also done something special with this delicate, nuanced vermouth. Macabeo, Pedro Ximenez, and Garnacha Blanca are vinified with skin contact, then aromatized with cumin, rosemary, fennel, and vanilla. The base vermouth is aged solera-style for a minimum of two years, then blended with older vermouths for an unparalleled depth of flavor.

Serving Suggestion: Serve chilled alongside Manchego, Marcona almonds, and thinly shaved country ham. Also excellent in a Manhattan!
