Aromatized Wine: Vermouth - Chinato

Vermouth and Chinato are red or white wines that are flavored with aromatic herbs and spices. Produced mainly in Piemonte and Lombardia, most producers are massive and crank out endless bottles of the stuff -- but I've found some small-scale producers making artisanal Vermouth and Chinato that are absolutely delicious. Start your evening with a glass of Vermouth, or end your meal with a digestivo of Chinato. These are also superb ingredients for cocktails. Give it a shake.
