- Produced since 1891 by the Cocchis in the town of Asti, Americano is a formidable doppelganger for Kina Lillet, the long vanished original Lillet Blanc. With the fragrant Moscato grape as a base, bolstered with a touch of brandy and seasoned with gentian, cinchona bark, orange peel and myriad herbs, it's complex, a smidgen bitter and phenomenally quaffable.
