The vermouth is made from a Moscato-based wine from the Langhe, which is fortified with alcohol and aromatized with more than a dozen herbs and spices. The result is a golden, amber vermouth with distinct aromas and flavors, ranging from honey and chamomile to the flowering plant gentian and wormwood. It is one of very few types of vermouth on the market made solely from wine and ingredients produced in-house. Quaglia insists that this ensures the intensity and authenticity of the aromas within the vermouth, as they oversee the whole process from grape and herbs to the finished product.
Golden-amber in color, Vermouth del Professore exudues aromas at once smokey, spicy, earthy and herbal. The supple texture of the alcohol balances its heat, and underlying bitter aromas counter the sugars present. The result is a harmonious elixir that is both refreshing and complex.
