Reviews and Ratings

Julia Kelada rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I feel like an archeologist! I feel like have have discovered one of the gems of the decade!
The Banfi Centine collection has so far been one delight after another.
On hot summer days, most of us are stocking up on whites, but they seem to go down so quickly that we often don't want to break the bank with an expensive selection for our back yard bar. Whether its for an intimate dinner party or a large garden party, I highly recommend this delicious Bianco!

On the nose this wines evokes memories of vacations by the sea, eating extravagant platefuls of decadent food. There are fruit notes of pear, papaya and cantaloupe then moist leafy notes evoking the taste buds.
On the palate there are the pears, cantaloupe, a slight bitter leafy tone that gives way to citrus notes. A mild spice of nutmeg and white pepper. Full of great mature personality, I would love this wine with any basil infused dish. Amazing, I shall be buying more!
I give this wine a 92

Bottoms up!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
