Wine is, by nature, an indulgent drink. And while some of those sweet indulgences—each sip awash with tannins that tickle the tongue, and bursting with complex, fruity flavors—can never be stripped away, one company is out to prove you can have your Prosecco and drink it, too, without the guilty indulgence of too many calories.
Gancia Leggero is a new diet Prosecco. It packs the same alcohol-content punch as its sister sparkling wines—at 11.5 percent—but goes down with less sugar and fewer calories. The company claims their bottles contains 75 percent less sugar that other Prosecco, according the Evening Standard, and has just 65 calories per 3.4-ounce glass.

Of course, it's worth noting that Prosecco is already a skinny drink. Most contain just a teaspoon of sugar (or about about one gram) and 80 calories per glass, making Prosecco one of the best alcoholic beverages for your beltline already. Gancia Leggero simply ups—or, in this case, lowers—the ante.
