About Hotel Starlino Rosé Aperitivo
Carlo Vergnano was working for Seagram Italia at the beginning of the 90s. In 1992, he bought the Moncalieri production plant from Seagram, setting the foundations for Torino Distillati ― a family-owned spirits business. The plant was built in Moncalieri in 1906 by a reputable family from Piedmont, Fratelli Ferrero di Riccardo, before coming under Seagram in the 60s.
Today, the company is run by Carlo Vergnano, along with his wife Piera and daughter Rita, who is set to continue the tradition. The company prides itself on professionalism, transparency, and the quality of their raw ingredients. Headquartered in a historic Art Nouveau-style building, the company now operates both the Moncalieri plant and the Santena plant. They are able to make infusions and extracts, distill, flash-chill, and bottle the products.
The Hotel Starlino range consists of the Rosso Vermouth as well as Rosé and Arancione Aperitivos. The original recipe was crafted by Denis Muni and Beppe Ronco, both with 2 decades of experience working on vermouth and aperitivo at Torino Distillati. The goal of the 2 aperitivo expressions was to create a fresh and natural profile that could just as easily be poured over ice or mixed with soda, tonic, or sparkling wine.
Starlino Rosé Aperitivo is made with the following botanicals: wormwood, elderflower, savory, coriander, cloves, dittany, centaury, hyssop, cardo, angelica, sandal, ambretta, thyme, orris, and sweet orange peel. After the one-month period of extraction and distillation of botanicals, Trebbiano wine is added, and the aperitivo is transferred into a stainless steel vat for 6 months. Finally, the aperitivo is chill-filtered and bottled at 34 proof.
