Banfi Centine Rosso Tuscany 2009
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.
Editorial Reviews for Banfi Centine Rosso Tuscany
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!
nice medium bodied red blend...red fruit flavors..
Light nose, light palate. I would enjoy this wine on a Sunday afternoon with a light meal
Three and a half glasses
