Review of Banfi Rosa Regale Brachetto 2004

Happy Hour: Banfi Rosa Regale Brachetto 2004

If you think all dessert wines are too sweet, think again. Banfi Rosa Regale Brachetto 2004 ($21.99) is a red sparkler that's appealing without being cloying. It has a fabulous ripe raspberry flavor and rosy scent. The bubbles are light and the fruitiness rich yet refreshing. The festive hue makes this wine ideal for special occasions. I poured it alongside a white cake, but it would complement chocolate excellently. Although we sipped this sparkler with dessert, it's unique berry-forward flavor means it could be enjoyed anytime — before, during, or after a meal.

Has anyone sipped this festive bubbly? What did you think of it?

First discovered this on my honeymoon in Disney World. My husband and I just loved it. We try to get it whenever we can. It is so good.

I bought this a few years for a Valentine's dinner party (for all of my girls who were single that year...including me) and have loved it since!

Hah - we just popped open a bottle of this a few minutes ago. It is sooooo yummy with chocolate! The first time I tried it was with a dark chocolate flourless cake 5 or 6 years ago, and I don't believe I've ever tried it with anything besides chocolate since because the pairing is so divine.

I think I might like this...I like dessert wines. Riesling is my most favorite type of wine because it's a little sweeter.
