Description:
Barolo Chinato is a fortified wine which was traditionally drunk for medicinal purposes to guard against fevers and stomach upsets, but also gifted as a sign of hospitality.

Today it is more commonly used as a digestif and is a wonderful way to round off a meal, as well as being unbeatable with dark chocolate.

Cocchi's Barolo Chinato still follows the traditional recipe: Barolo DOCG wine (100% Nebbiolo) is infused with the bark of the Calissaja Quinine tree, rhubarb roots and cardamom seeds as well as a secret blend of herbs and spices before being laid down for lengthy maturation.

Andrea Slitti, the winner of Grand Prix de Chocolaterie held in Paris in 1994 and golden medal at Berlin Chocolate Olympics in September 1996, created a special home-made praline to be eaten alongside Barolo Chinato.

Producer Information

founded his business in the North Western Italian town of Asti in 1891 when as a young pastry chef he became fascinated with the pairing of food and wine as he looked to expand the range of products on offer in his artisan bakery.

Giulio began producing quality aromatic-infused wines and by the turn of the century two in particular - Barolo Chinato and Aperitivo Americano - had become very popular, not only throughout Piedmont but also in the export markets of London, New York, Africa and South America.

Giulio Cocchi Spumanti is now owned by the Bava Family, themselves highly renowned wine producers. Today the winery still maintains its artisan character using only traditional techniques to craft the distinctive spirits that have made the Cocchi name synonymous with style and quality.

Cocchi's Americano means much more to Asti than a simple wine made with the infusion of herbs and spices. An aperitif par excellence, it is a taste of Asti's gastronomic history going back to the 1900s. Cocchi's is widely regarded as the original Americano, and has been made continuously since 1891 using only natural ingredients. To aromatise the white wine a secret blend of herbs and spices are added to the Muscato base which is then steeped over a period of time. Only produced in small batches, the bottles are laid down for a year before release. In recent years Cocchi Americano has risen to prominence as a more than adequate replacement for the now discontinued Kina Lillet made famous in such cocktails as The Vesper and Corpse Reviver No 2.
