  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

The pale flax/oyster color is brilliant and unblemished. The first sniffs detect keenly herbal, minerally, and grassy notes that become waxy and lipstick/lip balm-like in the later inhalations after additional aeration. The palate entry is engagingly ripe, grapy, and sweet; at the midpalate point, the acidity kicks in, keeping the ripe fruit from becoming too sweet and the stone/mineral flavor also accelerates, making for terrific warm weather quaffing. Heck, I’d enjoy this beauty simply served chilled on its own with a twist of lemon or orange. Absolutely delightful.

The nose on this almost colorless Vermouth shows a good balance of candy sweetness marries to delicate spices and herbal bouquets. The body is a little thin, but the palate is very well balanced, although the sweeter notes predominate here. The finish is light and sweet.

At the heart of the world’s favorite spirited beverages you will find Cinzano, recognized by its signature blue and red label and 250-year tradition of excellence. With classic appeal and versatile brands, Cinzano’s legacy is sure to continue for generations to come. In 1757 CINZANO’s two visionary brothers, Giovanni Giacomo and Carolo Stefano Cinzano, Master Distillers, opened a small shop in Turin where a dream soon became a reality. As their traditional Vermouth production rapidly increased, so did their reputation for quality. The Savoy monarchs beckoned the brothers’ expertise to create a sparkling wine to emulate the popular French Champagne of the early 19th century. The result was the birth of Cinzano Sparkling Wines in 1850.The Cinzano range of sparkling wines includes both sweet and dry versions, each with their own unique characteristics. Production Area Piedmont, Italy Grape Varieties Made from a blend of Durello, Garganega, Trebbiano and Pinot Nero grapes. Vinification Fermentation in tank followed by 1 month of maturation before bottling. Color Soft pink Bouquet Generous aroma of ripe berries Taste Fruity, fresh, lively acidic, pleasantly smooth Alcohol 11% Serving Suggestions Serve well chilled as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to light appetizers and salads
