Martini & Rossi Rosso Sweet Vermouth was created by Luigi Rossi in the 1860s, utilizing a blend of over 40 different Italian herbs and exotic woods from all over the world. It is a light, balanced, and scarlet-hued Italian sweet red vermouth. Its created with a secret blend of wines that give it a distinctive sweet taste, with subtle hints of orange and citrus. Its distinctive red color comes from the caramel used in Martini & Rossi Vermouth's unique blending process. Artemisia is a crucial ingredient in the distilling of this unique sweet vermouth and continues to be grown and harvested just a few miles south of Pessione. Martini and Rossi Rosso Sweet Vermouth is best enjoyed as an aperitif or in a variety of classic and modern cocktails. The aromatic and herbal notes of Martini Rosso & Tonic balance perfectly with rich, salted nibbles. For a quick aperitif, pair it with a simple bowl of olives or salted almonds, or for something more substantial, try a cheese and charcuterie board with salami, cured hams, and Pecorino cheese. Enjoy!
