Considered one of Piemonte's most renowned digestifs, Chinato holds a special place in the region's heritage. Traditionally crafted using aged Barolo, its name originates from the bark of the quinine tree, also known as the "China" tree, which serves as its primary botanical. However, Mauro, the producer, opts for a younger Barbaresco wine, as it offers softer tannins and a more pronounced fragrance. The inclusion of china bark infuses the wine with tea-like tannins, while an exquisite blend of herbs and spices such as cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, coriander, bay, ginseng, and rhubarb adds warmth and captivating complexity. Undoubtedly, there's no finer way to conclude a meal than with this exceptional offering.
