Vermut

An encounter of spices and floral aromas

Born in collaboration with the Liquoreria Friulana, our vermouth recovers the old traditional recipes and presents them in a contemporary style. Produced in limited quantities by combining the experience and creativity of two companies that have made of drinking well their trademark.

Alchemy of flavors

Wormwood, rhubarb, oregano, tonka bean, and citrus fruits: Luretta’s amber vermouth is a fortified wine that combines the aroma of Malvasia Aromatica di Candia with thirteen selected herbs and spices to create a sophisticated and nuanced beverage. Luretta’s Vermut is the only vermouth in the world produced with Malvasia Aromatica di Candia, the organic grape from Colli Piacentini found in our Boccadirosa.

history

The word “vermut” or “vermouth” comes from the German term “wermut” used to define the main aromatizer of this fortified wine, Artemisia Absinthium, commonly known as wormwood. The use of absinthe to aromatize white wine dates back to ancient Greece. The fame of vermouth is indissolubly bound to northern Italy where, at the end of the 1700s, the preparation of this aromatized wine was an art practiced by pharmacists who sold elixirs for the cure of all evils.

In a few years, vermouth changed completely, thanks in part to industrialization. Spiced wine became a popular aperitif, first in Piedmont and France and then in the rest of the world. Vermouth’s tradition is still going on today – no bar lacks at least one bottle of this fortified wine. Luretta’s Vermut is the only vermouth in the world produced with Malvasia Aromatica di Candia, the DOP organic grape variety from the Colli Piacentini region.
