Lambrini has cut the calorie count of its light range and is relaunching it as Luci by Lambrini.

The wine-style drink has been reformulated to lower the alcohol content to 3.5% abv and cut the calories from about 40 to 29 per 125ml glass.

The changes would boost the appeal of the drink to consumers who wanted a lower-calorie alternative, said brand manager Lorna Tweed.

The new range will roll out to Asda from next month (rsp: £1.99/75cl).
