Miami, Florida (January 10, 2013)– Casa Vinicola Zonin, Italy’s largest privately owned wine company, will debut its new Zonin Prosecco commercials on Food Network and Cooking Channel beginning February 1st— just in time for Valentine’s Day. The commercials will air throughout the month.
Zonin Prosecco: Attractively aromatic and fruity with hints of wisteria flowers and rennet apples- An excellent aperitif, it can also be served throughout a meal, including dessert, as long as dishes are not too strongly flavored.
Made with 100% Glera grapes, native to the Veneto region, Zonin Prosecco is a lively and sparkling wine that is an essential part of the Italian lifestyle. It’s a dry, fresh, and food-friendly wine that adds an element of festivity to any meal or gathering. The eye-catching bottle is stylish, yet classic. Francesco Zonin, Vice President of Casa Vinicola Zonin S.p.A and President of Zonin USA, says prosecco is served at the beginning of almost any Italian celebration. “I always open a bottle of Prosecco when I get together with friends. It is fresh and easy to enjoy, whether you begin the night with it as an aperitif or enjoy it throughout the meal.”
The four new commercials with the theme “From Italy, with Love” will feature Francesco Zonin, President of Zonin USA, and Zonin Prosecco in four different Italian cities: Capri, Florence, Milan, and Venice. The commercials showcase a storyline of each city.
Starting with Capri, Francesco Zonin explores the island in a taxi and talks about some of the things that he enjoys about the city - such as the Blue Grotto and Limoncello. He then takes viewers to Florence and shows them a glimpse of Italy’s “Renaissance City.” Next, he visits Milan- the fashion capital of the world and illustrates the typical Italian Aperitivo. Lastly, he invites us to experience Venice, the city of love, and shows us around the Venetian canals before arriving to Harry’s Bar— one of the city’s famous landmarks.
