The founders of Martini & Rossi Wine Company set to work in 1863 creating a recipe for vermouth, using high-quality wines and aromatic herbs.
Today, the Italian-based company is one of the most widely-recognized makers of vermouth and still bases its drinks on the original recipe. Martini comes in four varieties: the Bianco, Rosato, Rosso and Extra Dry. The pink-hued Rosato is a blend of red and white Italian wines from the Piedmontese vineyards. Dominated by fresh, fruity aromatics and just a hint of cinnamon spice, this spirit offers light flavors of citrus fruits and raspberry. The best way to enjoy: drink on the rocks with a squeeze of citrus for a classic Italian aperitivo or add to a cocktail with pomegranate juice, topped with lime and mint.
