Vermouth Torino Rosso Del Professore is a red vermouth produced in Lazio. With the Vermouth Rosso, the aim was to recreate the most popular style of vermouth in Italian history using Nebbiolo wine as a base. Del Professore insists that this ensures the intensity and authenticity of the aromas within the vermouth as they oversee the whole process from grape and herbs to the finished product. The final blend is rested for several months in wood barriques – exactly how long depends on the seasons. They patiently wait to ensure the flavours have married harmoniously before bottling.
The time in oak barrels gives the Vermouth Torino Rosso Del Professore an enveloping warmth and softness to the deliciously complex aromas of balsamic and mint reminiscent of old medicinal remedies of the past. There are further intriguing notes of refreshing absinthe, orange peel and vanilla. The palate is full and soft with initial balsamic and mint flavours. These flow into a pleasantly bitter aftertaste balanced by sweeter rhubarb and gentiana notes with muscovado sugar, and a light tannic structure from the refinement in oak.

The Winery: The Jerry Thomas Project
The Jerry Thomas Project is no ordinary producer, it is better known as Rome’s best speakeasy cocktail bar. Its recent partnership with Antica Distilleria Quaglia in a bid to start producing spirits as well as serving them, is a breath of fresh air. The Project is not just a tribute to the ‘father of American mixology’ Jeremiah Thomas, it is also a rediscovery of forgotten Italian spirits, a celebration of prohibition drinks with an Italian twist and an advocate for high quality products made with high quality raw Italian ingredients.
