Instructions
Stir over ice, serve straight up, no garnish.
Notes
Marolo Chinato is not strictly speaking a vermouth, it's an aromatised wine that's not as sweet as vermouth, so it's not easy to just swap it out and keep the character of the drink.
History
Invented while trying to find a good cocktail to make the chinato really sing.
