This looks amazing. I have too many bottles of vermouth open right now, but this is first on my list of things to make when I open a bottle of Punt e Mes (unless you think Cocchi or Bonal could work with modification)

Cocchi would be pretty different (but possibly also good). It might get lost with the Nardini. I think Bonal would work, although it would not be as bitter. Hey, it's just a recipe; experiment!

From other users

Delicious. Not as sweet as the inspiration due to lemon. A more mild rye will let the cognac through. (5 stars)
