Medium bodied, fresh bubbles, juicy, ripe fruit, gentle sweetness
L'Occhiolino is a gorgeous, appealing style that's been part of life in Italy's Emilia-Romagna since Roman times. But it's still a bit of a secret. In local restaurants, it's often not even listed. Instead, with a wink, the waiter produces a bottle from the cellar and pours his guests an irresistible sparkling glassful. It's an any-time sort of fizz, a delight dressed up in flutes or just as tasty served from tumblers on a picnic. Main thing is to chill it down so you can enjoy all its lip-smacking ripe fruit, sweetly spiced flavours and mouth-caressing bubbles at their juiciest best. Pop the cork of this fresh ruby frizzante, with its light sweetness. At just 7.5% it's perfect for lazy lunches and sparkling conversation with friends!
"Fizzy, frivolous and delicious, L’Occhiolino is the perfect picnic wine for the summer"
