  Cinzano is a vermouth that was created in Turin, Italy in 1757 by brothers Giovanni and Carlo Cinzano. The blend consisted of 35 local herbs and spices added to red wine, which acted both a preservative and also flavor enhancer. The white version with a different combination of botanicals was created soon after. The brand has long been associated with its ornate, colorful, graphic labels and advertising. The posters in particular have been known to beautifully reflect current events by showcasing scenes that are both glamorous and timely. The business stayed in the Cinzano family till 1985. It is now owned by Diageo.    Cinzano is available in Rosso, Blanco, Extra Dry and Rosé. Read less

A generously fruity wine, luscious with honeyed, fresh apricot flavors and a minty nose in the aroma. Full and sweet with balance that keeps it clean and refreshing.

Pretty orange and spice aromas carry through on the soft and foamy palate. Enough acidity balances the sweetness, making this a light, pleasant apéritif or dessert sparkler thats well priced. Drink now. 2000000 cases made.

Ripe and fruity without being over-ripe. Clean flavors of peach and pear. Crisp and refreshing finish.
