From the bottle:
Our crisp, mellow cuvée of noble Tuscan grapes. Rich fruit flavors of pear, apricot and a wisp of lime. Complements fish, grilled poultry and flavorful American, Italian and Asian foods. Ideal as an aperitif.
Today we come to our third wine in the Banfi Centine line, and so far we've been very impressed with both the Rosso red wine and the Rosé. Can the Bianco white wine make it three for three? Let's find out.
The 2010 Banfi Centine Bianco Toscana begins with aromas of pear, lemon/lime, and a little pineapple. The wine tastes nicely refreshing and crisp. The pear, lemon/lime and pineapple aromas carry over when tasting this nicely sweet wine. There's also a bit of underlying minerality that gives good contrast to the fruit flavors. The dry, medium length finish entices you to take another sip. Another winner for the Banfi Centine line of wines.
