This Moscato-based wine is abetted by a blend of herbs, fruit and spices developed in 1891. It is said to be a staple in Asti. The wine is laid down for a year before its release. Since its widespread release in 2010, it has become a favorite ingredient in cocktails made by craft bartenders, owing to the quinine content. The alcohol hits 16.5% abv. It has the color of apple juice and a nose that really shows off the botanicals used in making it. It carries a nearly overpowering aroma that is half floral, half medicinal. There is a strong earthiness to it as well. The palate won't go unnoticed either, that's for sure. It is a bit shrill on its own. I found some tonic water in the fridge and mixed it - or cut it - and it did tone it down some, although I actually doubled down on the quinine. I feel good that I have probably staved off a malaria outbreak in the household. I generally like mixer alcohols - like vermouth - on their own, but Americano Bianco won't be on my shopping list unless I suddenly become a craft bartender. And that's not likely.

Loved this. Tasted at Blackbird with a fluke and smoked scallop starter. Reminded me of Martini Bianco.
