Winemaker's Notes:

This sparkling red wine made from Brachetto d'Acqui in Piedmont, Italy is love at first sip and a perpetual crowd pleaser. The color is a festive cranberry. Aromatic with hints of raspberries, strawberries and rose petals. There is a taste of fresh raspberries, with crisp acidity, enticing the palate with an initial softness, graduating to a clean and dry finish.

Perfect for any occasion. A unique and festive sparkling wine, seductive aperitif, and elegant dessert wine. Pairs well with seafood, cheeses, spicy fare and chocolate. Serve chilled.

About Castello Banfi:

In 1978 John and Harry Mariani, owners of the U.S. wine importer Banfi Vintners, established the award winning vineyard estate and winery Castello Banfi in the Brunello region of Tuscany. A constellation of single vineyards located on ideal sites cover about one third of the 7,100 acre (2,830 hectares) estate. The remaining land consists of bucolic meadows, olive and plum groves, and woodland. Central to the property is a medieval castle that functions as a hospitality center, hosting visitors at a full service restaurant, enoteca and museum dedicated to the history of glass and its relation to wine.
