With so many choices what do you choose to drink? Banfi, Le Rime, Pinot Grigio, 2012 grown in Tuscany’s southern slopes is a good choice. Pale straw in color and very aromatic. Its nose is filled with faint lemon, pear, peach, wild flowers and some minerals. The palate is alive with lemon-lime, pear, apples and wet stones. It is balanced nicely with crisp acidity and a short finish.
Enjoy this wine as an aperitif with cheese and salumi platters place on the table before dinner starts.
