Naturale Orange Vermouth
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 Orange Vermouth is made with a base of natural, organic Zibbibo, aka Moscato, from the COS estate - vinified with a spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeast. The orange vermouth has notes of jasmine, sambuca as well as apricot and fig.
