Banfi 2006 Centine Toscana

Banfi 2006 Centine Toscana

A nice Itailan blend composed of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, & 20% Merlot. I was certainly not a fan the first night this was open - maybe it needed some time to breathe, maybe it didn't go with the ravioli with vodka sauce.

Tannins and cola on the nose, a bit nutty/oaky at the start, and a long finish. Slightly gummy, but not to the point of annoyance.

I had written this bottle off after the first night, but it Mickey Rourke'd me with a comeback on night two ;). I'll average it out with a 4 out of 10 rating. I just don't have time to wait around for a $9 to open up. From Costco.
