DRINK – A new sparkling wine, yes please – Piccini 1882 Spumante
Just in time for the party season Piccini launches a brand new sparkling wine and as well as tasting divine, it is reasonably priced too!
The much loved Italian wine brand, Piccini, launches its new 1882 spumante sparkling wine to offer the UK an affordable alternative to Prosecco.
As demand for Prosecco continues to soar and rumours of a potential ‘Prosecco shortage’ continue, 1882 has been innovatively produced with a blend of 75% prosecco (glera) grapes and 25% Chardonnay grapes to offer an equally delicious taste profile to the popular Italian sparkling variety. With an accessible introductory price offer of £6.50, 1882 allows Italian bubbles to be enjoyed at any occasion.
Cultivated in the cool climate and sea-fossil soils of Triveneto, including the traditional prosecco regions of Veneto and Fruili, Piccini retains its authentic Italian roots in winemaking by using the traditional Charmat production method to give 1882 its uniquely delicate fizz.
Undeniably fruity, with zesty citrus and tropical fruit flavours, 1882 is the perfect accompaniment for dishes such as succulent seared scallops, grilled fish and chicken salads.
Named after the year the Piccini family first began wine production, the launch of 1882 continues to establish Piccini as an innovative, exciting Italian brand that combines authenticity and heritage with industry innovation.
Available now in Sainsbury’s, Piccini 1882 Spumante at a RRP of only £7.00. Please visit www.piccini.co.uk for more information.
