Italy’s wine co-operative, Caviro, has announced the launch of its premium wine range, Romio, into Morrisons stores across the UK.
The Romio Chardonnay Grillo Sicilia IGT and the Sangiovese di Romagna DOC Superiore are classic Italian varietals that offer wine at a competitive price point (£6.49).
Caviro works with a select group of local producers from Italian regions to produce Romio Wines.
The co-operative uses its capabilities as a globally recognised producer, to offer these boutique Italian wines to markets such as the UK.
The quality of the Sangiovese di Romagna DOC Superiore, from the eastern coastal area of northern Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, was recognised with a ‘Silver Best in Class’ at the International Wine and Spirit Competition, 2011.
The Chardonnay Grillo Sicilia IGT is described as being “fresh and dry with flavours of ripe peaches and a buttery undertone and stands up exceptionally well to similar white wines at the same price point.”
Both Romio wines are available from January 2012 in Morrisons stores nationwide (RRP £6.49).
