Rosso Antico History
The Italian word for red, “Rosso,” is an apt name for this unique spirit produced in San Lazzaro di Savena, Italy. The bottle is red, the wine is red, and the aura surrounding the drink is all about painting the town a certain bold color. Created in 1962, the makers claim the liquor carries “The Spirit of the Sixties.” One sip and enthusiasts will find something very mod about the coupling of sweet and bitter flavors with notes of citrus and vanilla.
Rosso Antico is a mixture of 5 different types of wines infused with 32 herbs, including rosemary, thyme and sage, giving the spirit a thrilling complexity. With 17% alcohol content, Rosso Antico can be enjoyed as an aperitif accompanied by a fresh slice of orange or combined beautifully in cocktails, like the Negroni. The red bottle alone makes it an attractive addition to any bar or store shelf.
