NEW YORK, /PRNewswire/ — Renowned Italian wine pioneer Gancia is pleased to announce its foray into still wines with the launch of Gancia Chianti D.O.C.G. and Gancia Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie D.O.C. These two easy-to-drink varietals are crafted as an expression of Italian lifestyle, celebration, and the dolce vita. They join Gancia’s extensive portfolio of award-winning sparkling wines and liqueurs.
“After 170 years of winemaking excellence, we are delighted to announce we are getting into the still wines business, launching our first Pinot Grigio and Chianti under the storied Gancia label,” said Scott Oliver, CEO of Roust Americas. “These two wines are Italian classics and crafted with both quality and value in mind. We believe our launch comes at a time when consumers are more inclined than ever to seek out comforting high quality wines that deliver exceptional value for money.”
Gancia Chianti D.O.C.G. is a fruit forward blend of primarily Sangiovese grapes that is rich and velvety, making this a refined and enjoyable wine that pairs beautifully with red-sauced pastas and grilled meats. The refreshing Gancia Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie D.O.C. offers a fresh citrus fruit aroma and balanced floral taste and is ideal as an aperitif with light hors d’oeuvres or with a seafood lunch or dinner.
Both Gancia still wines will be available for purchase starting in New York in 2020 and then throughout North America starting Q1 2021.
