Gancia Dry Vermouth is light, aroma is slightly spicy and herbal, fruity, smooth and dryish. It’s lighter than Martini & Rossi one, spiciness is on moderate level and taste profile is more fruity and flowery. For cocktails it brings more fruity freshness than spicy herbness. Aroma and taste are a bit tame level, but considering the price it’s pretty much what you can expect.
