This has been made the same way since 1937 at the winery Martinez Lacuesta in Rioja. Almost 30 different herbs, spices and aromatic plants are macerated in white wine to make the vermouth. It's not sweet & it's not dry, but rides the line perfectly between. This is very herbal with notes of dried orange and cinnamon and a finish of bitters and is all about the botanicals. This is the perfect vermouth for a Manhattan and is also perfect chilled in a glass on its own.
