Banfi has unveiled a new addition to the Rosa Regale portfolio: Rosa Regale Sparkling Rosé Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG.
This rosé is produced at the Banfi Piemonte estate with the vineyard’s brachetto grape. Unlike the Rosa Regale Sparkling Red, which is defined by its strawberry character, the rosé is a fruit-forward wine with a citrus flavor profile, the company reports.
Each sip of Rosa Regale Sparkling Rosé has effervescence, with grapefruit, melon and orange blossom notes, the company adds. This wine provides an aroma of sweetness and acidity, consistent with Rosa Regale Red and White.
At 10% ABV, the new rosé is versatile for any drinking occasion and food pairing, from Italian-style aperitif hour to sipping with dessert.
Rosa Regale Sparkling Rosé is 10% ABV and comes from the Piedmont region of Italy. It’s made in a style that resembles a Provence rosé in color and character.
“Producing a Brachetto rosé at this level is nearly unheard of,” says Cristina Mariani-May, CEO and third generation family proprietor of Banfi. “The Rosa Regale Rosé is a testament to my family’s high standards of winemaking, and we hope all enjoy their own Italian-style summers with this wine. I know I’ll be opening many bottles while dining al fresco at home.”
Rosa Regale Sparkling Rosé enters the market with a suggested retail price of $19.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
