A white vermouth and an americano aperitif have been launched in the UK alongside a range of Italian sparkling wines by Casa Gancia.
The winery produces wines in the Piedmont region, including Asti 24 – the region’s first sparkling wine made from Moscato grapes in the Metodo Classico style, dating back to 1850.
The portfolio introduced to the UK also includes the Pinot di Pinot Brut and Rosé and the Alta Langa range made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
Its Vermouth Bianco, created before 1890, is made with Moscato Bianco grapes and a selection of herbs, with ABV of 16%. It is suitable for drinking neat or in cocktails and long drinks.
The bitter red Gancia Americano was created in 1966 and became very popular in the 1970s in Belgium and France. Based on young white wines and a unique selection of herbs and spices, the aperitif has ABV of 14.5%. It is perfect for cocktails and long drinks.
Casa Gancia controls over 2,000 acres of vineyards in Piedmont and over four kilometres of underground cellars in Canelli, the heart of Italy’s Asti region. Available in over 65 foreign markets and now in the UK, it is distributed by European spirits producer and distributor Roust.
