Created in 2016, the main aim of the Alegre Wines & Spirits project is to recover old winemaking traditions from Reus, Catalonia's (and Spain's) vermouth capital. Produced following an ancestral recipe, Fot-Li Fórmula Àntiga proves that the project is on the right track.
This exquisite Spanish vermouth is made from a selection of White Grenache wines coming from DO Tarragona and DO Montsant, blended with a 40-year-old raisin wine aged in soleras. The blend was then aged with a selection of 31 botanicals, such as thyme, angelica, nutmeg, fennel, cardamom, licorice root, oregano, lemon peel and orange peel. Finally, Fot-Li Fórmula Àntiga was aged in French oak barrels for 9 to 12 months.
Medium brown with bright amber glints, this red vermouth has a remarkably complex nose, full of herbal, spicy and floral suggestions. Full-bodied and intense on the palate, this traditional vermouth is bittersweet, smokey and quite deep, with a very long finish.
9,000 bottles produced. Fot-li Fórmula Àntiga is a quite special vermouth reserva.
