Bitter vino

Name for an aromatized wine with a characteristic bitter aroma. According to the EU regulation, "bitter flavoured wine" can be supplemented or supplemented with the indication of the bitter flavouring substance used may be replaced by one of the following descriptions: "Wine with cinchona bark" (if natural cinchona bark aroma was used in particular), "Bitter Vino" (if natural gentian aroma was used in particular for flavouring and a yellow or red colouring was applied) or "Americano" (if natural aromas derived from mugwort and gentian were used for flavouring and a yellow or red colouring was applied). In Italy, wines with china bark are called chinato, and there are bitter versions of Barolo and Martini, among others. See also special wines, wine-based drinks and mixed wine drinks.
