Americano 375ml, Contratto
Americano is also based on white wine mistelle. Just like the Vermouth, Americano draws from much the same pool of botanicals, and their classification or style is a question of the intent behind the proprietary formluation. Contratto in the beginning of the 19th century began producing Americano Bianco and Rosso, that compared to their Vermouths, were more sweet. Americano can come in various colors, such as deep red, straw or even clear (colorless). Americanos serve a similar function to Vermouths: they are excellent aperitifs on their own, and they make fine components of mixed drinks.
