Features

Gran Bassano Bianco is a white vermouth based on Vespaiolo, white wine from the native grapes of the DOC, of which the city of Bassano is part of. The original aromatic identity of Gran Bassano Blanco is due to a balanced infusion of over 20 botanicals, among which stand out – hawthorn, elderflower, grapefruit, galangal, myrtle sweet and bitter orange. Perfect as an aperitif or as a long drink with ice and tonic water. Towards the end of the 18th century, the wine infused with Wermut (Absinthium in German), gained popularity within the French court under the name “Vermouth”, later “Vermut” in Italian. Vermouth’s recipe was enriched through time thanks to Venetian merchants importing fine spices from India, Indonesia and Africa such as cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, rhubarb, myrrh, ginger, sandal wood and turmeric; later vanilla and quinine bark came from America. Venice, being the spice trade capital became one of the biggest distribution centres of flavoured wine, produced in many cities within the Serenissima Republic, such as Bassano. The historical bond between Bassano and Venice is represented by the clock located on the facade of Bassano’s city hall, created by Bartolomeo Ferracina, the same watchmaker who designed the clock mechanism of the Mori tower in Venice, the second most famous clock in the world, after Big Ben.
