Martini Rosso, the original vermouth, which is bitter-sweet in character and the most complex of the three. The amber-brown colour is attributable to the addition of caramel.
Martini Bianco with it's slightly sweeter vanilla overtones was first introduced during the 1910's. This 'white' MARTINI is actually a soft straw colour. It is also the most aromatic of the four. Its nose is intense, with a sweet, rounded smoothness and the clear presence of Martini Bianco... vanilla. And on the palate: an artful marriage of sweet and bitter, balanced in perfect proportion.
MARTINI Extra Dry vermouth was launched, with great international success, on New Year's Day in 1900. The Company had been experimenting with the production of dry vermouth since 1890 in some foreign countries, such as Cuba, in order to compete with the French "sec" vermouth. A straw colored vermouth with a sharper perfume, it reveals raspberry, lemon and the subtler hints of iris.
