Naturale Bitter Vino
Naturale is a joint venture between two close friends whose work both focus on artisanal, organic ingredients: Giusto Occhipinti of the winery COS in Acate, Sicily and Simone Sabaini, founder of the artisanal chocolate producer, Sabadi, in Modica, Sicily. Their idea was to realize a vermouth project “…dove il protagonista é il vino…” where the protagonist is the wine. The project is inspired by their friendship and their love for Sicily. The products themselves are Sicilian in every way, the base wine is Sicilian but also many of the herbs and aromatics used in the products are Sicilian as well.
The Naturale Bitter Vino is made with a base of natural, organic Cerasuolo di Vittoria from the COS estate - vinified with a spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeast. Think Barolo Chinato but made in Sicily from Cerasuolo di Vittoria! The Bitter Vino has notes of cedar, orange, gentian and quinine.
