“Ross da Travaj” Vermouth

Bèrto

“What is vermouth doing on the pages of a wine newsletter?!” you might ask. For one, Bèrto came recommended by two of our favorite Piemontese vignaioli, Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino, who produce world-class Barolo. Second, Bèrto crafted this artisanal red vermouth with four different grape varieties (in addition to about fifteen spices), grounding it firmly within the rich tradition of grape-growing in Piemonte. Finally, vermouth is technically a fortified wine. In this case, the family’s recipe dates back to 1930, and the bottle is so versatile you’ll turn to it again and again. My go-to is the Negroni.

About Piedmont

map of Piedmont

Kermit’s love affair with the great reds of Piemonte dates back to the early days of his career: the very first container he imported from Italy, in fact, featured legendary 1971 and 1974 Barolos from Vietti and Aldo Conterno. Regular visits since then have seen our portfolio grow to now twelve Piemontesi estates, with a strong focus on the rolling hills of the Langhe.

Nebbiolo rules these majestic, vine-covered marl slopes, giving Italy’s most mystifyingly complex, nuanced, and age-worthy reds. When crafted via traditional production methods—long macerations and extensive aging in enormous oak botti—the powerful, yet incredibly refined Barolos and Barbarescos provide haunting aromatics of tar, raspberry, incense, tea, roses, and more. At times austere in their youth but well worth the wait, they pair beautifully with the hearty local cuisine starring veal in many forms, braised beef, pastas like tajarin and agnolotti, and of course, Alba’s famous white truffles.

Surrounded by mountains on three sides, Piemonte’s climate is continental, with baking hot summers and cold winters. Nebbiolo is only part of the story here: juicy, fruity Barberas and Dolcettos represent the bread and butter throughout the region, and other native grapes like Freisa, Croatina, and the white Arneis are also noteworthy. Value abounds in the Monferrato, while Alto Piemonte also has its share of thrills to provide.

Every corner of Piemonte is rich with tradition, especially when wine is concerned. It’s no wonder we have been singing the region’s praises for over forty years.
