Cocchi Americano (Pronounced: ˈkɔkki ameriˈkano) is an aperitif wine from the Asti province of Italy. Cocchi Americano is a variety of Americano. The wine was developed by Giulio Cocchi, and production began in 1891. Cocchi also produces varieties of the aperitif. Cocchi Americano Rosa is slightly more bitter and aromatic than the classic white Cocchi Americano.

Cocchi Americano is generally considered to be the nearest contemporary drink to the original recipe Kina Lillet and is often used as a substitute for it in cocktails such as the Vesper Martini and the Corpse Reviver #2.[1]
