CHINATO

 Chinato wine had its beginnings around 1800 with a pharmacist’s recipe for an antimalarial liniment made with the powerful antipyretic cinchona.

 A mixture of spices and aromatic herbs was designed to attenuate the strong, 

bitter taste of the cinchona. Over the years from antidote for various diseases

it became an after dinner digestive to sip at

PREPARATION

Red wine is infused with expertly-chosen herbs and spices. After alcohol and sugar are added, the infusion is kept around at 20° C for about a month. After cold-stabilising and bottling, it is ready for consumption.
