Cocchi Americano is an aromatized wine created in 1891 by Giulio Cocchi and since then produced without interruption and according to the original recipe. The name ‘Americano’ is both due to the alcohol made bitter (‘amaricato’) by the addition of herbs and spices and to the American habit of drinking vermouth with ice and soda. Produced according to Giulio Cocchi original recipe, Cocchi Americano is recognised in Asti as the aperitif par excellence and a real piece of history of our town. On its label the original futurist rooster designed in the 30’s and representing his aperitif function (‘it awakes the appetite’) as well as one of the symbols of the town of Asti. During it’s history, Cocchi has produced some variants to it’s Aperitivo Americano. The most recent is Cocchi Rosa produced with a base of red wines of Piedmont to which herbs and spices extracts are added, in particular gentian, cinchona, citrus zests and rose petals.
