The alcohol-free, Tuscan red wine is Chianti specialised Casa Emma's answer to the health- conscious trend, with a 0%, low calorie, sugar free chianti!
The Sangiovese from Casa Emma beguiles the nose with a wide-ranging bouquet reminiscent of pomegranate, black elderberry, plums, "MonCheri" pralinés, rose petals and fresh red berries. On the palate, it is very silky, full-bodied and drinkable with a juicy, animating acidity that makes you want to take the next sip. Balsamic accents vibrate along with it. The aroma is again red-black fruits such as cassis, cherries and elderberry juice. Notes of pine sapling honey and gingerbread spice make it an exciting food companion. A non- alcoholic red wine from Bella Italia that perfectly accompanies a wide variety of spicy dishes. It is rich in polyphenols and low in calories and thus offers a health benefit.
Gluten Free Explained
Gluten is a protein compound found most commonly in the grains wheat, barley, rye and oats. Wheat and barley are often key ingredients in producing drinks such as beer and in sealing wine casks.

Is this really sugar free?
Yes this sugar has zero sugar! Products with a higher sugar content cause a spike in insulin and we react by storing more carbs as fat. You may also notice that although lower in sugar there is some carbs, this is usually more complex forms of sugar such as starches and fibre and the body uses these for energy.
Alcohol Free wines have just natural ingredients and but techniques to ensure it is alcohol free vary. This includes removing sugar pre fermentation to more sophisticated techniques of spinning the alcohol out through cones. Across Europe beers below 0.5% ABV are classed as alcohol free. In the UK drinks that are between 0.05% and 0.5% ABV are classed as non-alcoholic.
