Rosa Regale Banfi 2010
Rosa Regale is a unique red sparkling wine. Aromatic with a hint of rose petals and raspberries, Rosa Regale is delightfully vivacious and festive. While it is appreciated as one of the few wines in the world that truly marries well with chocolate, especially dark or bittersweet, its charms extend across a palette of occasions and food pairings, from savory to sweet.
Across Tuscany and anywhere wine is made, nature gives us its bounty. At Castello Banfi and throughout the varied terroirs and soils that make up our constellation of vineyards, we harvest the goodness of the earth, caressing and nurturing it as we craft our wine to express all its character in every bottle.

There's one review on this so far from "We Speak Wine", which is credited to the winery. Most winery reviews you read with a grain of salt since, after all, they are trying to promote their own product and may take some liberties in doing so. This time, however, they nailed it. The only thing missing is that there's more than just raspberry on the palate. This stuff just explodes with strawberries. Had this on Valentine's day with my wife. Paired it with dark chocolate and strawberry jam tarts. Absolutely fantastic stuff. Will definitely buy this again for those special occasions.
But we didn't like the 2011 New Year Bottle because it wasn't as good as the others.2012 New Year bottle was good.2013 good. 2014 good.

Aromatic with a hint of rose petals and raspberries, Rosa Regale Brachetto d'Acqui is perhaps the only wine in the world that marries well with chocolate, especially dark or bittersweet.
Festive cranberry in color with an aromatic bouquet with hints of raspberries, strawberries and rose. A fresh raspberry taste, with crisp acidity, enticing the palate with an initial softness, graduating to a round and luscious finish. - Winery
