Carpano Dry indeed has a lower sugar content that other vermouths in the line, and this high-quality vermouth contains quality wines, real wormwood, and the herb Dittany of Crete, as well. Tasting notes from the producer: "Carpano Dry is a clear coloured vermouth, yet vibrant and bright like platinum. And just like platinum, Carpano Dry maintains its characteristics over time, thanks to the distinctive ingredients in its recipe and the quality of the Fratelli Branca Distillerie production processes. Its aroma is characterised by a balanced and well-structured, yet not overwhelming richness of scents: candied fruit, spices, coriander, incense, lemon essential oil. It is the 'winey,' slightly acidic taste of the Vermouth that comes through initially, followed by an interesting fresh, balsamic note which lingers as an aftertaste: citrus fruits and green apple."
