Cocchi Americano Bianco Aperitif Wine
Cocchi Americano Bianco is white wine aromatised with a blend of herbs and spices
Cocchi Americano is an aromatised wine created in 1891 by Giulio Cocchi and since then produced without interruption according to the original recipe. The name “Americano” is both due to the alcohol made bitter (“amaricato”) by the addition of herbs and spices and to the American habit of drinking vermouth with ice and soda. Produced according to Giulio Cocchi original recipe, Cocchi Americano is recognized in Asti as the aperitif par excellence. On its label is the original futurist rooster designed in the 1930’s which represents the drink as an aperitif (“it awakes the appetite”) as well as being one of the symbols of the town of Asti.
White wine is aromatised with the extracts obtained through a cold infusion in alcohol, then refined for balancing the spices’ aromas and tastes. Artemisia, Cinchona, bitter orange peel and elderflower among others are all infused to create a citrussy, zesty drink that is superb when served with soda water, over ice and with a twist of orange peel.
