Tempus Fugit Spirits has introduced two new additions to their Alessio Vermouth collection: Alessio Vermouth Bianco and Alessio Vino Chinato.
These aperitif wines, based on 19th-century recipes, join Alessio Vermouth di Torino Rosso and Alessio Vermouth Chinato, offering the professional and home bartender a full-spectrum of Italian vermouth in a range of styles and sizes. The new Alessio Vermouths, available in the 750-ml. and 375-ml. sizes, are:
Alessio Vino Chinato
16% ABV, $39.99 SRP or $27.99 SRP, respectively
Alessio Vino Chinato is a Italian aperitif wine made with Nebbiolo d’Alba grapes – the same varietal used in the Barolo wines that have been cultivated in the Peimonte region of Italy since the Middle Ages. Alessio Vino Chinato has bold red and black fruit aromas and youthful tannins, the company says, with added herbal notes from aromatic herbs and a balanced bitter finish of both Red and Yellow Cinchona bark. This finish is steeped in wine along with other ingredients such as cinnamon, coriander and vanilla. It is for use in any cocktail requiring a classic Italian sweet vermouth and can also be enjoyed chilled on its own before a meal, or after. It also pairs with chocolate or sharp blue cheeses.
Alessio Vermouth Bianco
18% ABV, 750ml, $24.99 SR or $18.99 SRP, respectively
Alessio Vermouth Bianco is an historic variation of Italian sweet vermouth, regarded as “Vino di Moda” (fashion wine). Alessio Vermouth Bianco is filtered to be clear. Warm spices and mild bitterness are tempered with a bright, crisp citrus finish, the company says. Enjoy chilled on its own or as an alternative to traditional Italian Sweet Vermouths in classic cocktails.
“Alessio Vermouths venture back in history to recreate the quality of vermouth that was enjoyed as an individual aperitif and became recognized as an addition to a well-crafted cocktail,” says John Troia, co-founder of Tempus Fugit Spirits.
