Banfi Centine Rose 2011
Pale straw yellow color. The aromatics are very fruity, with hints of citrus, tropical fruits and pear. In the mouth the flavors are ample, with fruity notes joining those of tomato leaf. The lively acidity gives the wine an excellent savoriness, good freshness and a lingering finish.
Banfi Centine is a line of wines produced by Banfi, based at a family estate in Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy. The wines are a blend of Tuscan regional grapes and “international” varieties (such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot). These are approachable, value-driven expressions available in red, white and rosé.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
