This is a white version of Barolo Chinato – perhaps Piemonte’s most famous digestif. Traditionally made with Barolo, it takes its name from the bark of quinine (or 'China') tree, which is the main botanical here. If you haven't yet tried Mauro Vergano's Chinato, then please remedy this immediately. Vergano once worked as a chemist specialising in flavours and aromas, and today he crafts some of the world's finest vermouths. His 'Luli' Chinato is crafted with Moscato from Ezio Cerutti and Bera, mixed with a natural alcoholic solution of quinine, various herbs and spices. The quinine bark gives the wine tea-like tannins, while herbs and spices like cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, coriander, bay, ginseng, and rhubarb (and more..) provide warmth and fascination.
