GIUGGIOLONE (JUJUBE FRUIT¬† WINE) 11¬į

Giuggiolone is the end product of a very special process which lasts almost three years in which the fruit of the Jujube is left to soak in Trebbiano wine in order to extract its oily juices.


The resulting, wine-based drink is a deep golden colour.


The perfume and taste are well-balanced and contain all the characteristics of the mature jujube fruit.


It's excellent paired with matured cheeses, also with spicy and blue cheeses and great to accompany dry pastries.


Available in a bottle of 37.50 cl.

GIUGGIOLONE WINE

"Andare in brodo di giuggiole" (literally "to go into jujube broth" or rather " to go into raptures") is a well-known proverb in Italy.

The proverb is used to describe someone who experiences the sweetness of great pleasure and it clearly refers to the sweet taste of the jujube fruit, the main ingredient of Giuggiolone.


Homer (Book IX - Odyssey) tells us how Ulysses and his men, blown off course by a storm, landed on the island of the Lotus Eaters (believed to be present-day Djerba) in North Africa.


Some of his men, having gone ashore to explore the island, are lured by the "fruit of the lotus", a magical fruit that erases thoughts of wives, family and home.

The lotus mentioned by Homer is, most likely, the Zizyphus Lotus, a wild jujube, and the spell cast on the Lotus Eaters was probably not caused by narcotics, but by the alcoholic beverage that can be prepared using the fruit of this plant.


The jujube (Ziziphus zizyphus), also known as the "Chinese date", is a deciduous tree of the Rhamnaceae family.


It is believed to be native to northern Africa and Syria, and was subsequently exported to China and India, where it has been cultivated for over 4000 years.


The Romans were the first to import it into Italy and called it "Zyzyphum". The fruit itself, the Jujube, besides being so tantalizing to the palate, has excellent medicinal properties.


It contains saponins triterpenoid, small quantities of alkaloids, flavonoid glycosides and a lot of vitamin C.
