Mahogany with a hint of brown color. Herbal bouquet with notes of thyme and rosemary with reminiscences of spices like cinnamon. Nice bitterness on the finish with caramel notes. Refreshing with a balanced acidity, smooth with a long, lingering taste. Mix vermut in your favorite cocktail or drink it like a Barcelonian (Vermut + naranja (orange) + oliva (olive) + soda = Barcelona Vermut), at la hora del vermut (12 -3 PM) or any other time you wish, with ice or no ice, it's up to you. Salud!
100% Macabeo. Casa Mariol is a family-owned Mediterranean winery located in Catalonia, operating out of "La Batea" a medieval town in the heart of the Terra Alta region. Jose Maria Vaquer Bes opened the first winery in 1945 and the latest generation, led by Miquel Angel Vaquer and his siblings, has launched a small revolution in packaging and attitude . . . (no fancy packaging, no vintage focus, no oak, & no BS—just good juice at a good price). Ironically, they have won European design awards for their simple packaging and represented Spain at the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010. For the past century, as growers, the Mariol family has been tending to their vineyards sustainably to bring you the best crop. Produced using only environmentally friendly methods, their wines are pure Spanish craftsmanship. Casa Mariol's Vermut is made from wild Catalan Macabeo grapes, macerated with a worldy blend of herbs and spices and aged in 60-year-old solera barrels.
