Italian winemaker Voga Italia is set to launch another wine in the US.

The company said yesterday (15 January) that Quattro, a blend of Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet and Pinot Noir, will join its Pinot Grigio in the country from this month. The Pinot Grigio was released nationwide last year.

"Voga Italia Pinot Grigio has been a huge success selling over 100,000 cases in just a few months," said Alberto Pecora, Voga Italia brand manager at US distributor A.V. Imports.

"The addition of Quattro complements the Pinot Grigio while providing the brand with a quality red wine in unique evolutionary packaging. The future for Voga Italia is limitless and we fully expect Quattro to produce trend-setting sales."

The company's wines are available in cylindrical bottles, corked and then topped with a resealable cap - black for Pinot Grigio and silver for Quattro. Both wines retail in the country at US$11.99 per bottle.
