Cocchi Americano aromatized wine was created in 1891 by Giulio Cocchi. The name "Americano" is both due to the alcohol made bitter ("amaricato") by the addition of herbs and spices and to the American habit of drinking vermouth with ice and soda.
Cocchi Rosa is produced with a base of Brachetto d'Acqui red wine of Piedmont to which herbs and spice extracts are added, in particular, gentian, cinchona, citrus zests, and rose petals.
Enjoy in a cocktail glass with ice cubes, a spray of soda, and a zest of lemon or rose grapefruit. Soda can be pleasantly replaced with ginger beer, lemon soda, or tonic water. Cocchi Rosa is also great in a Spritz or Negroni. It blends very well with gin, vodka, and mezcal. Cocchi Rosa is a perfect ingredient for the new trend of low octane cocktails, with a low alcohol content. It is also an ideal match for Parmigiano-Reggiano. (from Cocchi)
