Lacuesta Vermut Reserva
As a special complement to the traditional production method for our vermouth, we have added a brief period of ageing, during which the vermouth matures beautifully in new French oak barrels from Allier, medium-toasted. Ideal as an aperitif, it is best served cold and accompanied by an orange peel and an olive.
Mahogany pale amber reflections. The nose is aromatic, caramel mixture and dried orange peel first, then touch lightly smoked. The palate is balanced, lingering bitterness that invites another drink. Sweet at the entrance and at the end, it highlights the caramel and an earthy touch, roots.
I was turned onto this by a distributor 15 yrs ago. To date, I have found nothing (Italian wise) that make a better vermouth for Manhattans than this. A must have for any spirits aficionado!
