Wine Review: Are you looking for a fun summertime wine to enjoy with friends on a hot day in July? Here you go. Rosa Regale! It is a red raspberry colored sparkler with very tiny bubbles. It opens with a mild strawberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, bubbly, and pleasantly sweet. The flavor profile is a tasty sweet black cherry with hints of strawberry mixed in. The finish continues to be sweet and enjoyable. At 7% alcohol this wine will be easy to consume in the summers heat. All that try it will enjoy! Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rosa Regale is a unique red sparkling wine. Aromatic with a hint of rose petals and raspberries, Rosa Regale is delightfully vivacious and festive. While it is appreciated as one of the few wines in the world that truly marries well with chocolate, especially dark or bittersweet, its charms extend across a palette of occasions and food pairings, from savory to sweet. On its own Rosa Regale is an elegant aperitif.
