CARPANO
Branca Menta, Bitters 700ml NV

TASTING NOTES

The lead note on the nose for Branca Menta is sweet mint, the thick layer of sweet mint does open slightly to allow some of the slightly bitter fernet elements to emerge in the midpalate, including the bitter aloe, chinese rhubarb, and saffron. Then the sweet mint dominates once more towards the long finish.

CARPANO

The story starts in Turin in 1786 when Antonio Benedetto Carpano, following a period in which he studied to be a herbalist, invented the formula which was to give rise to the category of Vermouth products, by combining herbs and spices with muscatel. Carpano’s wine shop was situated just opposite the Royal Palace and, confident of the appeal of his new product, he sent a crate of vermouth to King Vittorio Amedeo III. The king took such an immediate liking to the drink and he adopted it as one of the royal household.
