Wine Enthusiast 93 points - This aroma of this sweet vermouth suggests dark berries and savory spices. The first sip is sweet, rich and plummy, with flickers of juicy orange. The long finish is shored up with baking spice and dried thyme. Recommended for cocktails.  (Apr 2014)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - (UB Collection,Finalist)- Exotic opening with blackened cherry tomatoes, stewed peach, and marionberry on the nose. Dark berry fruit and honey occupy the palate with a lingering sweetness which turns to a savory and lengthy finish. (Mar 2015)

Punt e Mes is a legend on its own. The story goes that back in 1870 a stock broker, caught up in a debate with a few colleagues at Bottega Carpano, ordered a vermouth laced with half a dose of quina liqueur using a Piedmont dialect expression: ”Punt e Mes” (roughly translatable as ”one and a half”). Later on, this name with such a peculiar origin entered the common usage thanks to the weird habit of regular Carpano customers to order Punt e Mes only with a gesture, by using a raised thumb to mean ”a point” and a mid-air straight horizontal hand movement to mean ”a half”. When the waiter saw that, he immediately knew the client wanted a Punt e Mes. Punt e Mes has a golden orange color with topaz tones and aromas reminiscent of herbs, with hints of quina, toffee and cloves. Pleasantly soft in taste, marked by captivating accents of zesty orange. Excellent served straight with orange peel, perfect as a base for cocktails.
