Le Rime Banfi
Grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio
Exclusive use of free-run juice to avoid colour extraction from the skins. The temperature-controlled fermentation (15-16°C) is followed by a short storage in stainless steel tanks and, finally, by an early bottling to capture varietal freshness.
This wine is Banfi’s perfect interpretation of youthful white wines. The Chardonnay imparts roundness, while the Pinot Grigio adds crispness to this fresh and easy-to-drink wine. Ideal as an aperitif or as a perfect partner of fish dishes.
