Antica Formula Carpano Vermouth Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Rich and deep, with aromas of dark chocolate, dark berries, bitter cherries, almonds and marzipan.
Palate: Big, rich and concentrated. Raisins, fruit crumble, bitter chocolate and coffee mingle with candied orange peel and spicy oak.
Finish: Very long lasting, with the rich fruit and spice vying for attention.
Tasting Notes by Tim F
Nose: Rich and deep, with baked oranges, fruit compote, raspberry, dried mixed peel, oxidised red wine, thick-cut marmalade, marinated cherries, black tea and vanilla and wood tannins from the oak maturation.
Palate: Medium-bodied but very characterful, with the aromas from the nose surprisingly intense and long-lasting on the palate. The orange peel / marmalade, tea and oak flavours seem most prominent but with plenty of other fruit and herby spices behind.
Finish: Long and persistent, slightly drying. Marmalade and bitter orange liqueur. Very moreish.
Comment: Easily the most interesting and complex red vermouth we've tried. Unmistakably Italian, you can tell this is the real thing.
Tasting Notes by Simon Difford
Nose: An initial whiff of peat smoke, freshly cut tree bark, clove and honey is followed by berry fruit and vanilla.
Palate: The intense, sweet and sour palate is complex with fruity, red berry notes and bitter orange.
Finish: The finish is tangy and at the same time fresh and cleansing. The dying flavour is zesty orange and stewed dates.

Antica Carpano is fabulous.
I have spent years trying to make the best Manhattan imaginable. I've narrowed down the whiskey choices to a couple of bourbons and a couple of ryes - but as for Vermouth, there is only one choice - and that is Giuseppe Carpano Antiqua Formula - nothing else comes even close - including the highly touted Dolin - forget all those other vermouths - this is the best - THE best - the ONLY one you should buy - worth every penny. Mmmmmmm - indescribably delicious!!
