A big bottling of this classic dry vermouth from Italy.
A bracing, herbal aperitif, Cinzano is flavoured with 14 different botanicals (including rose and camomile) and made with a base of white wine.
This vermouth has a light straw colour, and features notes of pine, rooty herbs, slight vegetable note, flowers, dry berries, tree bark and white wine.
The bottling was made famous in the UK with adverts featuring Joan Collins and Leonard Rossiter, in which the latter extolled the virtues of “those Italian wines, suffused with herbs and spices from four continents!”
Delicious served over ice with lemonade, this also makes an excellent martini.
