Yes, this is indeed a Vermouth gracing our wine portfolio! Bèrto comes from a family-owned distillery that specializes in small-batch traditional Piemontese Vermouths. On plots of land high in the Alps, the family grows organic aromatic herbs and spices (absinthe, gentian, rhubarb, and many more), which are gently infused into a neutral spirit and then blended with a local white wine. A splash of Barbera d’Asti accounts for the rosso’s deep color. It is highly aromatic, slightly sweet, and pleasantly bitter on the finish—perfect in a spritz with some Prosecco or served ice-cold with a twist of orange alongside chocolate-based desserts. Deeply refreshing and surprisingly complex, it has even been known to convert ardent wine drinkers such as myself.
If you're looking for value, look where no one else is looking.
