From the Vajra website:
DESCRIPTION: Barolo Chinato is an ancient Piedmontese digestif. The wine used as a production base is Barolo DOCG Albe of the current vintage. The “chinatura” is the addition of infusions of about thirty herbs, rinds and roots of plants, including China (Cinchona Calisaya), hence the name. BLEND: 85% DOCG Barolo Albe, 15% hydro-alcoholic extracts of aromatic and medicinal herbs.
RECIPE: Every Chinato has a secret recipe, but some flavors (primarily that of Barolo) are so obvious that they can not be kept under wraps ... Selecting the herbs we have chosen those favored by the specific digestive, decongestant and relaxing properties, drawing liberally from the rich floral heritage of the Alps that hug Piedmont. The peel of organic oranges from Sicily, spices and brown sugar complete the process.
TASTING NOTES: Intense ruby red. The nose displays typical freshness of our Barolo, with a weave of roses and ripe cherries, fresh mountain herbs and orange zest. In the mouth, bitter sweet and persistent flavours. Beautiful as a digestive or paired with dark chocolate. 18% alcohol.
