Wine Details



Wine Description

(2005 Vintage) "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? This is a terrific version. The color is light cherry with a peach overlay, but the scents and flavors are pure strawberry-raspberry with hints of smacky, juicy melon and Rainier cherry. An impression of sweetness on the entry, because the fruit is so ripe, immediately turns dry. 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.
