Wine Description

"Banfi’s Centine Rosé 2005 (the first vintage for this wine) is designated I.G.T. – Indicazione Geografica Typica – because rosé wines are not officially permitted in Tuscany. Who cares?

The texture is so dense that it’s almost viscous, but the wine is never heavy or anything other than supremely refreshing read more...due to squinging acid and the lime and limestone that come in on the finish.
