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’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.

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 request online. 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.”

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.”
