Wine Details

Contratto Americano Rosso NV

The original 19th century recipe for Contratto Americano is based on a unique combination of white wine, Italian brandy and a delicate infusion of over 25 premium natural herbs, spices, roots and seeds. The selection of botanicals (including ginger, mint, bitter orange, sage, etc.) comes from a similar pool to the Vermouth, though the Americano is a bit sweeter. This aromatic infusion of herbs and spices creates a distinctive bouquet and flavor, delicious served chilled on its own and a perfect ingredient in classic and contemporary mixology.

Contratto Americano Rosso NV

International Wine Review (92)- "Burnt sienna color. Showing a complex bouquet of citrus, cinnamon, burnt sugar and a hint of eucalyptus leaf, the Americano Rosso is creamy smooth and off dry. There’s an appealing note of orange marmalade along with other citrus, floral and herbal notes on the palate. Infused with a variety of aromatics including wormwood and gentian. The name Americano refers to bitterness and has nothing to do with the Western Hemisphere. 200 g/L, 16.5% alc."
