Winemaker Notes: Cocchi Extra Dry is an extremely elegant stand-alone vermouth with fresh apple, melon, and white flower notes from the wine, beautifully balanced with the aromatic botanical notes of cardamom, wormwood, coriander, and angelica. The Piedmontese mint and lemon peels bring herbaceous notes and brightness to the palate, creating a unique personality. 

Cocchi Vermouth di Torino Extra Dry, released on the year of Cocchi's 130th anniversary, is a classic-style vermouth from the birthplace of vermouth, Piemonte. "Ricetta Piemontese"(Piedmontese recipe), stated on the label, is a very precise indication of the content: all the relevant ingredients for this vermouth come from Piemonte and have a strong bond with the region. The wine used for this vermouth is Cortese, the same grape used for Gavi DOCG. The Artemisia Absinthium, is 100% from Piemonte mountains. The aromatic profile is characterized by Menta di Pancalieri, a local variety of peppermint, and lemon, traditionally used to garnish vermouth in our region. The Cocchi Extra Dry proudly carries the "Vermouth di Torino" appellation.

Cocchi has produced wine-based aperitifs and traditional Piemontese sparkling wines since 1891. Since 1978, the company has been owned and operated by the Bava Family, themselves renowned producers of sparkling wine in Monferrato and Langhe. Giulio Cocchi was a young and creative pastry chef from Florence, where he worked in a popular bar located in Piazza del Duomo. In the late nineteenth century he moved to Asti, a small but lively town in northwest Italy, not far from Torino, and established himself as a distiller and winemaker. His Barolo Chinato, Aperitivo Americano and vermouths became well known during the Belle Epoque and the Italian Futurist period. By 1913 there were twelve Cocchi tasting Bars in Piemonte. Today the winery maintains its artisan character and follows Giulio’s original recipes to craft the distinctive wines that have made Cocchi a cult name worldwide. In the last 30 years, Cocchi has revived the forgotten wine categories Barolo Chinato and Vermouth di Torino. It was also a leader in establishing the appellation Alta Langa DOCG for traditional Piemontese spumante.
