2015 Chardonnay Pinot Grigio Description ...
The Estate was founded and restored by brothers John and Harry Mariana in 1978. Located between the Orcia and Ombrone Rivers on the southern slopes of Montalcino, with the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west and the Apennines to the east. Castello Banfi covers some 7100 acres of land and the parcels of fruit for the white were harvested from hilly vineyards, some 400 meters above sea level.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The Le Rime appears pale yellow with green highlights, with intense aromas of green fruit followed by zippy citrus on the nose. The palate is fresh and lively with ripe pear and juicy green apple in abundance, finishing clean and full with persistent fruit and citrus cream, particularly fetching but do not overchill and allow to open in the glass. Best consumed young and would be ideal with fresh fish and summer salads.
