Producer and importer of fine wines introduces rosé to Rosa Regale portfolio, joining sparkling red and white bottles

New York, NY (July 26, 2022) Today, Banfi announces a new addition to the Rosa Regale portfolio: Rosa Regale Sparkling Rosé Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG, just in time for summer. This rosé is carefully 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 delicate citrus flavor profile. 

Each sip of Rosa Regale Sparkling Rosé has a fine and persistent effervescence, with grapefruit, ripe melon and orange blossom notes. This wine provides a well balanced aroma of sweetness and fresh 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. 

Handcrafted in the Piedmont region of Italy, Rosa Regale Sparkling Rosé is a direct result of Banfi’s passion and precision for Italy’s wine culture. To create this wine, Brachetto grapes (red Italian grapes primarily grown in the Piedmont region) are hand picked, destemmed, crushed, and softly pressed. This technique ensures the juice is only in contact with the skins for a few hours, delivering a fresher style of Brachetto that resembles a Provence rosé in color and character. 

“Producing a Brachetto rosé at this level is nearly unheard of,” said 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 an SRP of $19.99 for a 750ml bottle  (distributor pricing may vary).
