This is Martini (no, not the cocktail), otherwise known as Martini
& Rossi vermouth. It’s a dry vermouth made in Italy. Vermouth is a
herb infused wine usually considered as a mixer but it can be drunk
neat at room temperature. It’s pretty good actually, tastes like white
wine that won’t give you gastric.
It weighs in at 18% – very paltry, but it has been my companion for
the last few days. You can see that it’s at the end of its lifespan,
it’s a pretty good to drink before dinner. A lot of people won’t
consider vermouth, especially the dry ones, for drinking straight, but
try it, you might like the taste.
