Cinzano Rosso Vermouth Best Buy 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

Very dark tawny tone. Heady perfume speaks of overripe grapes, quinine and roots. Agile, tar-like in the mouth as flavors of quinine, citrus peel, roots and berries combine in a piquant twang thats neither clumsy nor cloying. Finishes tasting of ripe oranges and pink grapefruit. Very nice with a splash of fresh-squeezed O.J. Best Buy.(Wine Enthusiast)

  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

Pale straw color. Nose is vibrant and brimming with off-dry, slightly candied and metallic scents of pine tar and damp vegetation. On the palate, its clean and keenly off-dry. Aftertaste smacks of roots and tree bark. Round, carefree and beguiling. Best Buy.(Wine Enthusiast)
