Gin and Chinato Cocktail

Gin & Chinato

Recipe courtesy, Joe Campanale, founder, Annona Wines.

While many pair Barolo Chinato with barrel-aged spirits, Campanale prefers to go light. Using the gin and tonic as inspiration, the cinchona bark in Chinato stands in for the bitterness traditionally contributed by tonic, while adding a herbal notes. Campanale recommends citrusy, floral gin, such as those from Greenhook Ginsmiths.
