Banfi Centine 2007
Italy – IGT Toscana
If you’re looking for great value, here it is. Dry and full bodied, this blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot has a complex array of aromas—floral, dense dark fruit, earth, anise and leather. Firm tannin and lively acidity balance the rich spicy fruit on the palate. It finishes with a flourish. Don’t miss out—enjoy it now with Tuscan steak, and cellar a few bottles for 3-5 years. It earns an extra ½ star for value.
