La Quintinye Extra Dry Vermouth Royal 375ml

SKU #1219577 Wine & Spirits

 Following a trend in Barcelona, the vermouth revival is in full swing, as evidenced by the imminent blossoming of vermouth bars in Chicago (Artemisia) and Los Angeles (Maruno). This is good, as a profusion of new vermouths has been arriving in recent years, from ancient purveyors like Martini and new ones like La Quintinye. The base for La Quintinye’s Rouge, Blanc and Extra Dry is the fortified wine Pineau des Charentes, which is then infused with 12 botanicals, including vine flowers, ginger, nutmeg and the requisite wormwood. While mixable, the vermouths adopt a robust and characterful style, making them utterly sippable on their own, especially the aggressively flavored Blanc. The Rouge and Extra Dry, however, will beautifully animate any cocktail. (JM)  (11/2015)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
