External Reviews for Banfi . Brachetto d'Acqui Rosa Regale
Distinct notes of cranberry and raspberry on the nose and palate are accented by wisps of toast and rolled oats. The acidity is elegantly wrapped in juicy fruit. As in previous vintages, this is a clean, classic and delicious treat.
A berry cornucopia with bursting raspberry, strawberry and blueberry mdash; just like a good Brachetto drsquo;Acqui should be. Also typical of this style of sweet, sparkling wine with low alcohol is its soda pop fizz in the mouth and spicy finish.
Displays a pleasing array of earth, spring flowers and red berries on the nose, but seems simple and sweet in the mouth.
Heavy on the rose petal and raspberry compote aromas, and also heavy on the palate. Yes, therersquo;s definitely a touch of cherry cough syrup to this red sparkler. To enjoy this you have to like your sweet; maybe best with a custard dessert or vanilla ice cream. Itrsquo;s too sweet and candied for chocolate.
Food Pairings for Banfi . Brachetto d'Acqui Rosa Regale
A unique, easy-to-drink sparkling wine with sweet aromas of rose petals and raspberries. Its flavor combines fruitiness and gentle acidity, making it one of the few wines that pairs well with dark and bittersweet chocolate.
