2015 Banfi Toscana Le Rime Pinot Grigio

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Italy is the spiritual home of our beloved Pinot Gris grape, and this one from Banfi is made in the more steely, crisp style. Aromas of apples, green pear and subtle honeysuckle dance around the nose hairs, whilst the palate is dry, lighter-bodied and crunchy, with more apple and pear flavours, bright acidity, and a refreshing, zesty finish. Ideal with lightly-fried calamari.

Winemaker's Notes

Le Rime takes its name from the lines that form on the sloping vineyard floor as water washes down the hillside, much as the ebb tide leaves its mark on the sandy beach. This Pinot Grigio catches that fresh minerality inherent to the terrain of southern Tuscany.

The exclusive use of free-run juice at fermentation, followed by cool temperature fermentation and early bottling, makes the wine brilliant, vibrant, and appealingly fresh.

Pale straw in colour, the wine offers impressive rich, ripe fruit aromas that hint of pear and white flowers. The wine is well balanced with an unusually lively acidity.

Le Rime is a splendid aperitif and a delightful complement to antipasto, pasta, and light meals.
