Cocchi Americano means much more to Asti than a simple wine made with the infusion of herbs and spices. An aperitif par excellence, it is a taste of Asti’s gastronomic history going back to the 1900’s. Enjoyed with ice and soda at every corner of the town, it is still the perfect partner of long chats under the setting sun.
Barolo Chinato is a fortified wine which was traditionally drunk for medicinal purposes to guard against fevers and stomach upsets, but also gifted as a sign of hospitality. Today it is more commonly used as a digestif and is a wonderful way to round off a meal, as well as being unbeatable with chocolate.
Cocchi Americano is an aromatized 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.
