Greatest sweet vermouth by such a huge margin that it's almost embarrassing.

Hands down the best sweet vermouth. Do a side by side comparison with any major brand. Youll be amazed. Just poured it neat. Tasted. Then added Campari ( now i have the americano). Retasted. Yum. . Then added gin for a negroni. Delicious. Well worth the cost.

I've never experienced the luscious "herbiness" of a vermouth like this. Absolutely gorgeous. We bought it to make Manhattans, for which it is the secret sauce. But I'm planning to drink it on its own and serve as an aperitif.
