Cocchi's Americano fortified wine is an aperitif par excellence and a taste of Asti's gastronomic history. The secret blend of herbs and spices (including cichona bark) are used to aromatise the Moscato which is then fortified before being laid down for up to a year before bottling. Cocchi Americano conjures notes of orange zest, orange flower and elderflower leading on to aromas of baked apple and pear drops. Bitter notes mingle with sweet honey and citrus flavours before wine-like characteristics become prominent as the flavours develop, with a bittersweet freshness lingering until the end.
Serve over ice with a slice of orange or use to create a sophisticated Spritz like no other.
