9 di Dante Inferno Rosso Vermouth
9 di Dante is the brainchild of Alex Ouziel, under the experienced mentorship of famed Master Blender Mario Baralis. A product made possible by a chance encounter that has developed into close friendship.
Having learned the art of Vermouth making for over 30 years, and guarding the secrets of the original Carpano and Antica Formulas, Mario has been happily retired for 20 years. He never saw himself creating a new and original vermouth formula until he crossed paths with Alex and they started discussing how artisanal Piedmont craftsmanship could inspire the taste of a new generation.
The name is an homage to Dante’s “Divine Comedy” and his journey through Hell. This Vermouth di Torino Superiore defies the traditional boundaries of Italian Rosso Vermouths. Blended from equal parts Dolcetto Red and Cortese White Piedmont wines, we have developed this original recipe to deliver a modern an intriguing taste.
9 di Dante features an intense ruby red color. The aroma is fruity, with hints of red berries, cherry and orange. The palate is rich and full bodied with a perfect balance of herbal and citrus. The finish is fresh and mildly bitter.
9 di Dante respects the artisanal traditions of Piemonte to produce an innovative product that will surprise you in appearance and taste. A Vermouth di Torino Superiore that has been blended to be enjoyed alone or over ice with a twist of orange peel. 9 di Dante will bring a new injection of life, and a bit of sin to your Americano, Negroni or Manhattan.
