Castello Banfi Centine 750ML
The best tradition of the Sangiovese grape in Tuscany that, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, allows a youthful and intensely fruity blend. The ideal companion of simple dishes but also suitable for more complex matches. The color is intense ruby red with youthful hints. The bouquet is intense, vinous and spicy in which the Tuscan character of the Sangiovese is perfectly married with the international character of the Cabernet and Merlot. In the mouth, it is gentle, soft and easy-to-drink. Delicious with roasts, game and medium aged cheese.
A medium-bodied, fruity red, boasting cherry and berry flavors presented on a moderately firm frame, with a touch of earth on the finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2015.
Score: 87. —Bruce Sanderson, October 31, 2012.
