Made of red wine: intense, balanced and unique.
Color: this Vermut Falset has an intense deep red color.
Nose: prevalence of a red wines aromas mixed with Mediterranean herbs used during maceration. Hints of tobacco leaves and touches of seasoned wood in the background.
Palate: a very balanced vermouth, a little sweetness appears after the soft astringency of red wine. A really special vermouth, very unusual.
Vermut Falset is an aperitif. Usually accompanied with olives (Arbequines or stuffed with anchovies), crisps and some cockles in vinegar. Try it also with canapés, appetizers or more sophisticated hors d’oeuvres.
We recommend you to serve Vermut Falset slightly chilled (or with an ice cube). You can also make a vermouth spritz or mix it to get cocktails taste a lot different.
Vermut Falset is made with Grenache and Carignane grapes, which are then fermented on their skins just like in red wine production. The result is a very aromatic wine with a deep red color. When the wine is ready, it is fined, filtered and a special infusion is added made up of 120 different botanicals (on of them wormwood, of course) which will be left to macerate for more than a year in 500 and 600 litre oak barrels.
This infusion is added then to the wine in suitable proportions, the sweetness is corrected and it is left to rest for nearly three years in 225L oak vats. No caramel is added.
The vermouth is bottled in small quantities and the vats are refilled and never completely emptied. Vermut Falset is bottled without any physical or chemical modifications which may cause some settling in the bottom of the bottle over time.
We can enjoy the red version of Vermut Falset after nearly fifty years since it was last made. By pure chance we recovered the original formula which was lost back in the sixties.
