Giulio Cocchi founded his business in the North Western Italian town of Asti in 1891 when, as a young pastry chef, he became fascinated with the pairing of food and wine. Giulio began producing quality aromatic-infused wines and, by the turn of the century, two in particular; Barolo Chinato and Aperitivo Americano, had become very popular across international markets.

Cocchi's vermouths are much more than simple wines made with the infusion of herbs and spices. Aperitifs and digestifs par excellence, the Cocchi range is a taste of Piemonte's gastronomic history which dates back to the 1900s.

Giulio Cocchi is now owned by the Bava Family, themselves highly renowned wine producers. Today the winery still maintains its artisan character using only traditional techniques to craft the distinctive spirits that have made the Cocchi name synonymous with style and quality.

From the Americano, hailed as the original, to the Barolo Chinato, once drunk for medicinal purposes and to guard against fevers, Cocchi's vermouths remain some of the most well respected and quality driven in the world today.

Vermouth Amaro is 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 Cocchi Barolo Chinato to this base adds a real complexity and depth to this unique product, bringing delicate tannins and round notes from the aged Barolo.

Cocchi Dopo Teatro Vermouth Amaro is based on the styles of vermouth traditionally drunk in Turin’s cafes after visitors had been to the theatre, hence “Dopo Teatro”. These digestifs were commonly served chilled in a small glass with just a twist of lemon zest. Today it is also a perfect ingredient to add a touch of bitterness to classic cocktails.

Tasting Notes

Sweeter than the nose suggests, with rich fruit - baked apples sprinkled with raisins - fruit cake and intense brown sugar sweetness complimented by darker and earthier notes of tree bark, damp soil and spice - ginger, nutmeg and a hint of clove.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
