One of the worlds most popular red vermouths. A combination of dry white wine flavoured with aromatic herbs and spices.
The story dates back to an 1870 stockbroker, caught up in a debate with a few colleagues at Bottega Carpano, ordered a Sweet vermouth laced with half a dose of bitter Quina Liqueur using a Piedmont dialect expression: “Punt e Mes” (roughly translatable as “one and a half”).
Punt e Mes has a golden, orange colour with topaz tones and aromas reminiscent of herbs, with hints of quina, toffee and cloves. Pleasantly soft in taste, marked by captivating accents of zesty orange.
