Gabbiano, already popular in the US, includes three wines: rosé, chianti classico and pinot grigio.
The agency will first concentrate on the rosé, positioning it as a women’s lifestyle product and a year-round drink. Statistics show that rosé is most popular at Christmas.
Green Row will draw on the wine’s Tuscan origin to position it as social, warm, friendly and accessible. It will also offer spokespeople, take journalists to the vineyard and promote the new vintages early next year.
Director Helen Trevorrow, who leads the account, said the wine was ‘the first Tuscan rosé available in mainstream supermarkets’. Trevorrow reports to brand manager Tyler Psarras.
