The one and only Daniele Piccinin provides the base for all Controcorrente vermouths!
Enrico Ciroi is the mastermind behind Controcorrente. Daniele Piccinin wines provide the base, which are blended with only a handful of carefully chosen botanicals that Enrico believes complements the wine. Less sugar than usual is used so they are perfect as a base spirit or solo. The Rosso is a Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara base steeped with thyme, helichrysum and rhubarb. Bitterness heavy and earthy spices galore. Lovely in a spritz, negroni or by itself on the rocks with whatever garnish you desire. Aperitivo or digestivo ready. A vermouth that can do both.
