The Vermouth

Vermouth Borbone Rosso is inspired by a fascinating Neapolitan story.

From the middle of the 19th century, weekly magazines, ie meetings between friends and relatives for entertainment purposes, between friends, relatives or simple acquaintances, were held in Naples. During these meetings, which in the houses of the nobility of Borbone had the form and typology of the literary salon, lyrical singers appeared, hired for the purpose of singing opera arias or Neapolitan classics; sometimes the entertainer was a comedian who appeared in the so-called "macchiette", a comic book number halfway between a monologue and a humorous song while cold refreshment was served.


In the most humble houses, instead of opera singers or other artists, people were content with a gramophone to hear songs, and instead of expensive cold refreshments, they served cheaper "tarallucci and wine" in winter or "pinocchiate" and homemade cakes, rosoli, or cups of ice cream in summer . As soon as the use of homemade rosolio was discontinued, the more expensive "guess" o "guessing" was served to accompany the pinocchiate.

Later, during the summer months, the pinocchiates were accompanied by beer rather than Vermouth. However, it sometimes happened, especially in the less affluent class, that only a few families were hospitable enough to keep the tradition of the magazines alive by paying for the associated costs of singing and refreshments, and there was someone to help out Avarice the bad habit of taking advantage of the hospitality of others by attending every magazine that could take place without ever opening the door of his home to a meeting, the editions of which he willingly supported, in order to arouse the complaints of those who were impatient to do so felt empowered ask him: "Do you always want the Vermutta from me?"


But why the Vermouth? The answer lies in the fact that tarallucci, wine, rosolio or beer were less expensive local products than Vermouth, a more expensive imported product than "tarullucci and wine" or "rosolio" or "beer" could be the profiteer's annoyance. It was precisely during these years that it became customary among the nobles and the "population" to make a Neapolitan vermouth by reusing discarded nuts and spices to make nocino to flavor white wine and marsala.


Vermouth Borbone Rosso, made from Trebbiano and Moscato, flavored with soft absinthe, bitter orange, rhubarb, quassia and vanilla, is intoxicating on the nose, with pleasant notes of spices and fruits. On the palate it is herbaceous and bitter and still shows an acidity that leaves room for a balanced aroma between the warm alcoholic perception and the spicy sweetness, in a soft and fresh taste with a long, round and persistent finish.
