Banfi Centine Rosso Tuscany 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense mauve-red in color; delicate notes of ripe berries, chocolate, tobacco and truffle. This wine is well structured, soft, and nicely balanced.

Very youthful on the nose is all lightly creamy, spice wood and vanilla framed cut cherry/berry fruit that's topped with a nice violet note. A little light bodied at first, but this really has attractive black cherry and strawberry fruit wrapped in in soft tannins and fairly bright but integrated acidity. Fruity and simple with a touch of a chunky mid-palate that leads to a slight rustic finish. Mostly Sangiovese with enough Cabernet and Merlot to add richness though not enough to obscure the wines Tuscan roots. 87pts

Fresh and approachable. Cherry, strawberry and raspberry fruits up front with just enough tannin to keep it real. Tastes like something way more expensive!

Intense ruby red color and a wonderful round spicy mouthfeel with a full finish. Great with roasts pasta dishes and aged cheeses. Great everyday wine at a great price.
