Quite unexpectedly, something from Banfi! Tuscan wines in Walla Walla, go figure!
Anyhow, 40% Sauv Blanc, 30% Pinot Grigio, 30% Chardonnay, the Centine Bianco … fairly restrained aromatics, a lot of nose calisthenics required to draw the bouquet out … what’s there is nice tho, definitely some oak, but a nice dose of mineral and mid-to-high-tone fruit as well … nicely, smells like hill fruit!
Mid-weight viscosity, and while the mid-palate is somewhat less than demonstrative, the finish is actually surprisingly rich and evocative …
