ROSA REGALE BRACHETTO D'ACQUI
This semi-dry, red sparkling wine from Italy has an alcohol content of only 7%.
Crisp and refreshing with ocean air, raspberries and roses on the nose and palate. Wonderfully balanced and delicate.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Excellent apertif or wine for salads, desserts or light summer meals. It is so light, delicious and mouthwatering that you can drink it like juice or water. The aromatics of roses and raspberries make this a sexy steal of a wine. One of the best red sparklers I've ever had. Since I'm often conservative in my reviews, 90 points may even be too low of a score. Retails for around $16 a bottle.
