Cocchi Americano is an aromatised wine created in 1891 by Giulio Cocchi and since then produced according to the original recipe.
It is recognised in Asti as the aperitif par excellence – a real piece of history of the town.
Cocchi Americano, for its nature, represents the link between wine and liquors being a wine plus a small quantity of alcohol bittered (“amaricato”) by the infusion of precious herbs and spices: white wine, sugar, herbs and spices infusion in alcohol and in particular gentian flowers and leaves, Artemisia, Cinchona, bitter orange peel, elderflower and others.
To produce Cocchi Americano, white wine is aromatised with the extracts obtained through a cold infusion in alcohol, then refined for balancing the spices’ aromas and tastes.
