Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana Vermut NV
|Availability:||In stock (5)|
Vermut La Gitana was created from an original recipe found in the Hidalgo family archives. The first record of its use was in the early 19th century. This is an exacting recreation of that once popular expression. Using Palomino Fino Oloroso Faraon and Pedro Ximenez Triana both matured for a minimum of 12 years in 100 year old American Oak Butts, the wines once blended are infused with aromatic herbs and other botanicals for another 6 months. Deep mahogany in color with expensive aromas of complex spices and citrus oil with hints of Christmas spice. Perfect balance and acidity with elegance that belies the complexity and keeps it from feeling too sweet. Vermut La Gitana is ideal as an aperitif with a splash of tonic or soda or chilled and served after dinner. Served neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail, this might be the first Spanish vermouth to take on Carpano Antica head on and win.
