BANFI CENTINE 750 ML
Our Centine takes its name from a 19th century farmhouse on the Castello Banfi vineyard estate. This rural Tuscan dwelling is noted for its many stone arches, called centine in Italian.
Calcareous and well-drained.
After a very soft pressing, the fermentation takes place for approximately 16 days, partly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, partly in French oak barriques, followed by 4 months of barrel aging.
Fruit-forward with varietal notes of pear, apricot, lime, and herbs.
Dry and well balanced with crisp acidity and lush fruit flavors.
Ideal with white meats, grilled poultry, and entrée salads. Perfect also as an aperitif.
James Suckling: 90 Points
Clean and crisp with vivid acidity and mineral character. Medium body, bright acidity and a clean finish. Always a nice white to drink. Do so now.
