Rich, fruity and enticing, this sweet vermouth is warmed with notes of fig and dried cherries, and just faint hints of spiced gingerbread and bitter orange peel. Drinkable solo as an apéritif, or use it as a cocktail-mixing favorite.

This dark, mysterious vermouth is rich, complex and layered, boasting aromas of mint and other herbs, plums and figs, reminiscent of Madeira. The rich flavors are hard to pin down: cocoa, red wine, almonds, bitter marmalade, hints of spice and toffee all play across the palate, finishing with a bracing bitter edge. This delectable sweet vermouth would shine in a Manhattan.

As the story goes, in the late 1700s, wine merchant Antonio Benedetto Carpano took locally produced Muscatel and flavored it with herbs, spices and fruit peels. Today, this richly fruity sweet vermouth is a staple in Americanos and other aperitivos.

Turin, site of the 2006 Winter Olympics, is also the capital of Piedmont, home to many of Italy's great red wines. So it makes perfect sense for one of country's best sweet vermouth to hail from here. As the story goes, in the late 1700s, wine merchant Antonio Benedetto Carpano took locally produced Muscatel and flavored it with herbs, spices and fruit peels. Today, this richly fruity sweet vermouth is a staple in Americanos and other aperitivos. An equally delectable dry version, Carpano Bianco, recently debuted in the U.S. It may actually be closer to Anotnio's original creation.
