Ovid's First Century Myth

1 12 oz Gin (Russell Henry Hawaiian White Ginger)
12 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Barolo Chinato
14 oz Orange chocolate liqueur, Distillerie de Biercée Orangine
2 ds Bitters (Five Watt Coriander Bitters)
Instructions
Stir, strain into a chilled spirit glass, and garnish with an orange twist
Notes
*the Russell Henry Hawaiian white ginger gin is atypically sweet and bold in its Botanical profile, obviously with the ginger. I'm not sure of other applicable substitutes (possibly the vernal gin from Letherbee or Portobello Road). **The coriander bitters from Five Watt are very true to name: bright, light and slightly tropical
History
The long of it... I was intending on making an Adonis cocktail and saw the Cocchi Barolo in the pantry and it sent me on a wildly different path. There are some elements of the Adonis here, but there are elements of others like the Negroni and even to some degree the Martinez
