Foster's has lined up what it claims is the UK's first premium varietal rosé for the off-trade.

The drinks giant's EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) unit confirmed today (8 August) that Gabbiano IGT Toscana, from the Italian region of Chianti on Tuscany, will be available exclusively in the UK through Sainsbury's, with a retail price of GBP5.99 (US$12.20) per bottle.

"Rosé is currently under-represented in Italian wine in the UK, with Italian wines constituting only 4% of total rosé sales, versus Italy's 12% share of total still wine," said Tyler Psarras, NPD concept leader at Foster's EMEA. "Additionally, there are very few premium varietal or regional rosés on the market from Italy.

"It is Gabbiano's aim to demonstrate to UK consumers how premium Italian rosé creates a point of difference in the summer drinking repertoire."
