Banfi's Centine falls into the category sometimes referred to as baby supertuscan. "Supertuscan" because it's made with non-traditional French grapes, namely cabernet sauvignon and merlot in equal 20-per-cent proportions, along with 60-per-cent classic Tuscan sangiovese. "Baby" because of the relatively modest price. Medium-bodied, it offers a hint of juicy cherry supported by lively acidity, rounded tannins and a trace of spice. $18.20 in Quebec, $19.99 in New Brunswick, $19.99 in Nova Scotia, $18 in Newfoundland, $19.94 in Prince Edward Island.
