Qu'est-ce qui a inspiré la boisson?

My cocktail is named after the exquisite terroir where some of Mionetto's premium grapes are grown & inspired by their tradition of sourcing the highest quality ingredients to create something simple yet sublime. My cocktail celebrates Italian lifestyle, passion & indulgence, meant to be the quintessential post siesta sunset aperitif. It's an exotic riff on a classic sbagliato, each ingredient serves to enhance the natural aromas of the Mionetto. The seabuckthorn Armelade provides a comforting familiarity with a distinct citrus kick. My white vermouth enhances the notes of honey & delicate floral bouquet of the Mionetto & provides a gentle grassy herbaceousness amplifying the minerality. The calamansi is bright & sour while the tropical mamey sapote, reminiscent of peach & apricot, is creamy & fruity with a hint of nuttiness that creates a lush flavour affinity with the Mionetto. The mango vinegar offers a funky acidity that dances on the palate with Mionetto's effervescence. Cheers!
