Rosa Regale Banfi Acqui Dol Ce 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A soft red sparkling wine, made from Brachetto. This extremely aromatic, complexand historical grape variety grows only in the area of Acqui Terme, in Southern Piedmont.The cold maceration of the grapes, followed by a soft pressing, allows the extraction of thetypical intense aromas from the skins and gives to the wine its characteristic light ruby redcolour. Very pleasant and extremely elegant.

Vigne Regali:
In 1979, John and Harry Mariani, owners of the U.S. importer, Banfi Vintners, acquired a mid-18th century winery, known as Bruzzone, revitalized it and renamed the facility Vigne Regali.

In 1979, John and Harry Mariani, owners of the U.S. importer, Banfi Vintners, acquired a mid-18th century winery, known as Bruzzone, revitalized it and renamed the facility Vigne Regali. Here, with the same detailed care as a century ago, our skilled winemakers produce L'Ardì Dolcetto d'Acqui D.O.C., a ruby-red still wine, and two exceptional sparkling wines: Banfi Brut Metodo Tradizionale Classico, and "Rosa Regale" Brachetto d'Acqui D.O.C.G., from the La Rosa single vineyard. The rare Brachetto, a semi-dry, red sparkling wine cherished by the Courts of Europe two centuries ago, owes its reincarnation to Banfi. Just a few kilometers from Strevi lies the Principessa Gavia estate established by the Mariani family around the same time as Vigne Regali. This single vineyard is dedicated exclusively to the cultivation of the Cortese di Gavi grape, the sole white grape used to make the prized still wine Principessa Gavia Gavi and the lightly frizzante Principessa Perlante.

Fresh, bright and lively, the Banfi Rosa Regale is a very fruity, semi-sweet sparkling wine; a sassy effort; perfect with spicy appetizers.

Fresh raspberries, with crisp acidity, enticing the palate with an initial softness, graduating to a clean and dry finish.
