Light prosecco with a quarter of the calories

Casa Gancia is rolling out Leggero Prosecco, a light prosecco containing only 0.6g of sugar per 100ml serving, which is four times less than regular prosecco.

Crafted from Glera Grapes and with an ABV of 11.5%, Gancia Leggier Prosecco is made using the Martinotti Method, the method developed in Asti in 1895 by the Italian winemaker Federico Martinotti and still used today to produce sparkling wines in both the Asti and Prosecco regions. The final result is a light and fruity sparkling wine packed with pear and apple flavours.

“This is every female’s dream come true,” said commercial director of the Stonegate Pub Company, Suzanne Baker. “Prosecco is already considered one of the lighter drinks, and now with a skinny version, this is no doubt going to tap into the growing consumer trend for low calorie and low sugar products. It has all the hallmarks of one of our most successful launches to date.”

Gancia Leggero Prosecco will be launching exclusively in the Stonegate Pub Company today for six months, before becoming widely available across the on-trade.
