Based on the original recipe of Giulio Cocchi where wormwood is enriched with rhubarb, quassia wood, chiretta and a double infusion of quina. The addition of Barolo Chinato to the wine base gives delicately red nuances and further soft and complex notes.
Rich, sweet and fruity on the nose. Maraschino cherries and plump raisins sit alongside burnt caramel, green twigs and pungent herbal notes, all covered in a jammy sweetness. Sweeter than the nose suggests, with rich fruit cake and intense brown sugar sweetness complemented by darker and earthier notes of tree bark, ginger, nutmeg and a hint of clove. Fruity sweetness lingers slowly giving way to darker and bitter notes.
