The pleasure of a chilled red wine with ice, a unique opportunity to share the CECI 1938 lifestyle #LAMBRUSCOTASTEOFITALY #LAMBRUSCOCECIPEOPLE
TORRILE, ITALY – EQS Newswire – 25 March 2021 – The creative forces behind CECI 1938 present a special version of the famous Lambrusco, OTELLON’ICE. Lambrusco, a wine that is hugely popular in Japan, is a nectar that best expresses itself at the best at low temperatures. With Otellon’Ice, the Italian winery is going one step further, adding a brilliant twist by creating a Lambrusco that’s best served on ice.
In CECI 1938, the Italian “dolce vita” culture finds an exceptional representative abroad. The inventiveness of CECI 1938 wineries transcends boundaries, combining the wine’s unique characteristics with spectacular bottles.
The OTELLO collection’s distinctive bottle, the first to have a square base, is dressed in a sparkling gold colour and features a metallic effect that is as unusual as it is spectacular. A jewel of a bottle, an object of design whose metallic colour highlights its understated shape.
With the hashtags #LambruscoTasteOfItaly and #LambruscoCeciPeople CECI 1938 invites wine enthusiasts and the curious to share their affinity with this lifestyle and join the global community.
An expression of the contemporary lifestyle, with CECI 1938 Lambrusco becomes the manifesto for a young, carefree way of life, a true ode to the conviviality and joy that this wine expresses through the charm of its ultra-chilled red bubbles.
“Lambrusco is our calling card in Italy and abroad; for us it is an iconic product that we continue to craft with great attention to every detail. OTELLON’ICE expresses one of the many facets of this delicious wine. OTELLON’ICE takes the concept of chilled Lambrusco to the extreme by presenting it with ice. We have been exporting our wines to Japan for around 15 years including, since 2012,
OTELLON’ICE in partnership with the Japan Salt Corporation. With OTELLON’ICE Lambrusco, we are taking the most authentic and cool Italian products to the world”, says Maria Teresa Ceci, CEO of Ceci 1938.
“The convivial spirit of Lambrusco has evolved through our innovation that is expressed by OTELLON’ICE; we’re constantly conducting research in order to improve our products, making them the expression of contemporary taste while respecting authenticity”, adds Maria Paola Ceci, President of CECI 1938.
For a summer aperitif in pure Italian style, OTELLON’ICE enchants with its bouquet of ripe cherries and fruits of the forest with hints of violet. Its intense ruby-red colour presents a fine, persistent sparkle.
The Lambrusco’s lively personality is echoed in its dazzlingly reflective square-based bottle design. The label mirrors this style, with minimalist graphics echoing the gold colour of the bottle and creating a play on words by highlighting the word “ON”, because this Lambrusco switches “ON” the imagination and is served “ON” the rocks.
