Vermouth di Torino Rosso Scarpa
Scarpa Vermouth di Torino Rosso is the best red Vermouth we have found for making a Negroni. Trust me, we tried a lot and this one came out tops. The base wine is Moscato d’Asti DOCG and Scarpa has used the same secret blend of 40 herbs to infuse the wine with a crazy amount of flavour. Lovely over ice, with a bit of tonic or equal parts Gin and Campari.
Scarpa was founded in the 1850’s by Antonia Scarpa and cemented its reputation as one of the best wineries in the region in the 1940’s under wine maker Mario Pesce. Mario was a great advocate of sustainable agriculture, traditional wine making and long bottle ageing. These three principals are the bedrock which Scarpa’s great wines are based on. Their range centres around the great Nebbiolo based wines of Barolo and Barbaresco but they also produce wonderful single vineyard Barbera d’Asti and one two of Italy’s finest Vermouths.
