Cheers to the Holidays with @BanfiWines!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

A good glass of wine for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner is a must as the holidays approach. Whether you are drinking it with dinner or with dessert, check out the great varieties that Banfi offers: 

Bell’Agio Rosso Dolce

Inside the gates of Bell’Agio, you’ll discover a place where bistros are bustling with people living life to the fullest. A place where quality of life is defined by friendships, food and wine. Bell’Agio captures that attitude. It’s bold with a beautiful Italian flair. During the production technique, soft pressing is followed by maceration. Fermentation takes place on the must in stainless steel containers.A second fermentation (Charmat) develops the characteristic sparkle.

Bell’Agio pairs delightfully with spicy foods, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, aged cheeses, and is superb with pastries.

Bolla Sparkling Rose

Select grapes are gently crushed and pressed then quickly separated from the pumice to avoid imparting too much color on the young must. After the first temperature controlled alcoholic
fermentation at about 18°C, the base wine undergoes a second fermentation in closed pressure tanks for the “prise de mousse,” resulting in a light, fully-sparkling wine. Bolla Sparkling Rosé is a lively pink bubbly best served chilled. It makes a wonderful accompaniment to hors d’oeuvres, delicate
first courses, white meats, and fruit-based desserts.

Maschio Prosecco Brut

Prosecco Brut is produced by Cantine Maschio, one of Italy’s leading Prosecco producers, with a proud 200 year heritage of family winemaking experience. Prosecco Brut embodies the
finest traditions of Prosecco while accommodating modern, sophisticated tastes.

The grapes are pressed gently to extract only the free-run juice from the heart of the grape. The juice is then left to rest in stainless stee tanks. After approximately 12 hours, when the must has separated
from the lees, fermentation begins. Vinification takes about 15 to 20 days and is completed in stainless steel vats kept at a constant temperature of 65 to 68˚F to develop the wine’s sparkling character.

Prosecco Brut makes an ideal aperitif and also pairs wonderfull with antipasto and hors d’oeuvres, light fish dishes, sushi and sashimi, fresh fruit, and pastries. Serve chilled (42° to 54°F).

Rosa Regale

Rosa Regale is produced using the Charmat process, fermentation with brief skin contact, filtration and storage at 32˚F, followed by refermentation in stainless-steel vats, and isobaric bottling.
A unique and festive sparkling wine and a seductive aperitif. Pairs well with seafood, cheeses, spicy fare and chocolate. Serve chilled.
