Surprises Come in All Kinds of Shapes & Sizes: Banfi Centine Rose & an Easter Basket!
I was really surprised to get this bottle of wine sent to me. I thought maybe I had forgotten to cover this wine. Nope. I have no record of that it was being shipped to me, but it did arrive with a great Easter Basket full of all kinds of goodies.
The bottle is a Banfi Centine Rose’ wine that is exquisite. Typically pale red/pink wines are too sweet for me or my husband. This wine is not sweet. It’s fabulous! It’s dry, tasty and a very easy sip! I love it. I had to find out where I can buy more because this is the perfect sip for Easter Dinner or any weekend or spring/summer events. ( Yes, I know that the bottle is half -empty. My husband liked it a lot.)
Back of the bottle.

Varietal: 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
Hillside vineyards in the southern part of Tuscany. The soil is calcareous and well-structured.
The grapes are vinified with a brief maceration for 7 days. When alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are complete, the wine is aged for a short period in barrels of French oak, followed by moderate bottle aging.
Tasting Notes Color:
Intense ruby red. Bouquet: Fragrant, with dark fruit and floral nuances. Taste: Medium-bodied, with black cherry and plum flavors and hints of spice.
Ideal with a wide range of dishes such as roasts, game, pasta, and cheese.

Turns out there are 5 stores in close proximity to me and more if I go a bit farther out. I will be heading to one of these stores this weekend to pick up a couple of bottles. This is going to be my favorite wine for this summer!
Here’s the rest of the cool gift: details on the Easter Basket:
This basket had plastic eggs full of Skittles, Reese’s mini Peanut Butter Cups, gourmet jelly beans, Ghiradelli’s Rabbit (which broke in transit), and lots of mini-Tootsie Pops in crazy-great flavors like tangerine, tropical and other great flavors.
Thank you to PR company who sent this to me. I LOVE it!
Disclosure: The Easter basket was clearly a gift. I have never tried the Banfi Centine Rose’- and it’s absolutely delish!
