Italian - carpano classico ,16%,
Antonio Benedetto Carpano a herbalist by trade, is the individual traditionally credited, perhaps posthumously, with inventing the commercial model for what we know today as red Italian vermouth. Carpano’s wine shop was situated just opposite the Royal Palace and, confident of the appeal of his new product, he sent a crate of Vermouth to King Vittorio Amedeo III. The king took such an immediate liking to the drink and he adopted it as one of the royal household. The Carpano brand was formalized some years later (1820) by Giuseppe Bernardino Carpano, Carpano’s nephew.
