Introducing the world’s most expensive Prosecco

A Prosecco brand named Casanova has set a new level of bling-tastic ultra-luxury for the Italian sparkling wine with the launch of a Swarovski crystal-encrusted DOC Prosecco.

Casanova Swarovski Edition Prosecco DOC

Casanova’s limited-release ‘Swarovski Edition’ Prosecco DOC comes in 0.75cl and 1.5cl magnum bottles, with 3,370 individual crystals (0.75cl bottle) and 6,145 crystals on the magnum bottle.

The 0.75cl bottle is priced at £1,290.

A product description for the wine on Casanova’s website states: “This edition represents opulence to the nth degree and could satiate the desire of even the most demanding of Prosecco lovers.”

The Swarovski Edition is available exclusively on the menu at Novikov restaurant in London or online from Casanova has also patented the rights to Swarovski on any sparkling wine bottles – including Champagne.

Carlo Parodi, founder and CEO of Casanova Prosecco, commented: “We believe in the marriage of exceptional wines with elegant design to ensure that the enjoyment of any Casanova purchase lasts long after the final sip, thanks to the fabulously opulent designs of our bottles. The Swarovski bottles, in particular, are a stunning addition to our range.”

Casanova brand ambassador Ike Ordor added: “It’s important to us that our products are available to true connoisseurs of prestige sparkling wines and we’re ensuring that they are available at selected high-end outlets.”

Judging from the narrative on Casanova Prosecco’s website, Parodi appears to have embraced the spirit of the legendary lover Casanova with enthusiasm, offering the following autobiographical blurb alongside a picture of himself holding a thumb to his chin and looking purposefully into the camera: “Cultivating whatever gave pleasure to my senses was always the chief business of my life; I have never found any occupation more important. Feeling that I was born for the sex opposite mine, I have always loved it and done all that I could to make myself loved by it. I have also been extravagantly fond of class wine and irresistibly drawn by anything which could excite curiosity.”

As well as the crystal-encrusted Swarovski Edition, Casanova produces a range of Proseccos “to suit all occasions”, from traditional Prosecco DOC Brut and Prosecco Superiore DOCG (priced at £13.99 and £18.90, respectively) to rosés such as the Rosé Cuvée Prestige Extra Dry, priced at £16.99.

Casanova also produces ‘The White Collection’ a range presented in white and pink bottles, with a matching white jacket “to further add to the elegant appearance”.

Casanova Prosecco is available in selected venues, including The Ritz Carlton, Mews of Mayfair, Library Members Club, Sanctum Hotel and Le Petit Sud bar within the Baglioni Hotel.

    Casanova is one of the worst Prosecco ever offered for distribution to me in Hong Kong…

    Cava Giró i Giró has had a label with Swarovski inserts for several years, GRANDALLA DELUXE GRAN RESERVA Brut. This is an exceptional Cava that costs quite a bit less than the Casanova Prosecco, although one must take into account that there are many fewer pieces of Swarovski on the Giró label, and that it is CAVA made by the Méthode Champenoise process and not in giant stell tanks.

    Dear Roberto,

    I think is not a professional way to start a public discussion and even because we never done a business together you have no rights to say anything against.
    Professional people are able to discuss, find solution and manage everything, unprofessional spend their time for leaving bad comments as it is the maximum what they can do.
