Instantly recognisable, this wine is at the heart of what Piccini does: a classic Chianti made to a very traditional recipe.
What’s the secret to this wine’s juicy, easy-drinking style? A traditional Tuscan technique called Governo all’uso which sees a small amount of the Sangiovese grape – which is used for all Chianti – added as withered fruit. The effect of this is to induce a very slight secondary fermentation which in turn gives delicious, bright, red fruit flavours to the final wine.
Piccini Orange Label is fabulous on its own or with practically any food you can think of – from pasta and tomato sauce whipped up after a busy day at work, to mature cheeses eaten by the fire with friends.
You can find the Piccini Orange Label Chianti in Sainsbury’s at an RRP of £6.20.
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 from Sainsbury’s with an ongoing RRP of £9.00.
