Centine 2008 Toscana IGT

Wine Roundup Dec 12 003

This is an Italian red blend that can be had for a song. It’s low cost and high drinkability make it a good choice for an every day wine.

It is a Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The Sangio and Merlot ensure it has a silky texture and the Cab gives it structure.

Green Dragon bought this wine at the grocery store for about $9. At that price point the Centine (Chen-tee-nay) is a great value.

This is a youthful blend with plenty of cherry fruit and a soft feel.The wine is flecked with flavors of leather and a slight spiciness.

It’s accessible, affordable and a dependable pick from Tuscany.
