Sweet Vermouth Favs

Many CocktailHounds rave about Carpano Antica Formula vermouth.I bought a bottle recently and have about 1/2 left in my fridge.I think it's pretty good,but I mainly get a vanilla taste from it.My main drink this winter has been a Manhattan and I think I like it just as much with Martini & Rossi as I do the Carpano.Heresy I know,but it has been a bit disappointing.I LOVE Vya vermouth.Spicey,sweet,just a lot going on to me.
Another favorite drink is a Negroni offshoot swapping out the Campari and subbing in Aperol.Delicious,but again the Carpano doesn't seem to step it up from
some other brands.Am I missing something? Do you have any favorite drinks where the addition of Carpano really stands out?Thanks.
