Lowest Calorie Prosecco?
5th January 2017
At only 66 calories per 100ml glass, Cirotto’s newest Prosecco Superiore DOCG Extra Brut is possibly the lowest calorie Prosecco you can buy.
The fizz boasts a very low sugar level of only 3g per litre; less than a quarter of most Prosecco at around 16g. At 66 calories, it’s even lower than the ‘Skinny Prosecco’ brand which has 67 calories per 100ml glass and 7g of sugar per litre.
Despite the low calories and residual sugar, the aroma, taste and alcohol content (11%) are not comprised. The Prosecco is exceptionally high quality due to the hard work, experience and determination of award-winning Cirotto winery. Every step of the winemaking process has to be perfect, starting with top quality grapes which come from one of the best Prosecco regions, Monfumo in Asolo. As a result, the Prosecco is delightful to drink with beautiful aromas of golden apple, pear and citrus fruits.
Cirotto’s Extra Brut Prosecco is a style which will appeal to those that prefer a very dry taste or for those of us who watch our weight where every calorie counts! The Prosecco allows consumers to still enjoy their favourite indulgence, yet reduce their calorie and sugar intake at the same time. A perfect way to help with New Year diets.
“ Given Cirotto’s Prosecco has very little sugar and few calories, consumers may think it won’t be pleasant to drink. How wrong can they be! As the Prosecco is very high quality, it is beautiful, easy to drink and not overly dry to the taste. In cheaper, more mass-produced Prosecco, sugar is often added to cover up any imperfections in quality and make it more palatable. With Cirotto’s, they carefully manage every step of the process to ensure there is nothing bad that can adversely affect the taste of their wine” comments Julia Phillips, owner of Just Perfect Wines, UK importer for Cirotto.
