We were in love from our first taste of Banfi Rosa Regale. This red dessert wine was served with our Vegan Donuts from Roots Bistro that happened to be topped with fresh strawberries. The favor explosion was unparalleled to any dessert wine we have had in a while! It is also one of the few wines that pairs well with chocolate (can you say...SCORE). This mildly sparkling wine is made from the light red Brachetto grape. It offers sensuous flavors of raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, and grapes that linger on well past the sip. Unlike most dessert wines it is not overly sweet ; and can stand on its own as a good sparkler or even served between dinner courses to refresh the palate.
We ended our evening with two six packs of our own mini Banfi Rosa Regale's to take home. Roots Bistro does have this wine available for purchase and comes pretty close to the price you will receive at any other specialty wine shop or boutique in the Houston area. This wine comes in two sizes, 375 ml or 750 ml bottles and is great for winding down the evening or to bring to a dinner party. You would be hard pressed to find anyone that would not fall for this wine!
