The headquarters of Fratelli Branca is located in Milan, Italy, but they also produce some of their liqueur and vermouth in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Branca are perhaps most famous for their spectacularly intense digestif liqueur, Fernet Branca, which dates all the way back to 1845, when it was created by Bernardino Branca in Milan. It has grown incredibly popular over years, particularly in Argentina and San Francisco, where it is often served neat alongside ginger ale. Fernet Branca even made an appearance in The Dark Knight Rises, being enjoyed by Alfred Pennyworth! Nowadays, Branca also produce the Carpano brand of vermouth, including the rather wonderful Punt e Mes.
The Bianco is the most elegant and richly perfumed of the Carpano vermouths. Ideal served cold, straight, on the rocks with a slice of grapefruit. Alcohol content 14.9% vol.
Carpano Bianco has a light yellow colour, a fresh and complex aroma and an easily identifiable winey note, in addition to citrussy and exotic fruit flavours. Fresh cocoa beans and almonds complete the bouquet of this delicious vermouth. An initially smooth and velvety palate is rounded off by a complex winey note with mineral tones. Persistent and delightful, this vermouth is perfect for any occasion.
