ABOUT THIS WINE
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.
Le Rime takes its name from the lines that form on the sloping vineyard floor as water washes down the hillside. Captivating and easy to drink, Le Rime perfectly accompanies an aperitif with friends. The growing season of the 2019 vintage was characterised by a particularly cold spring, which delayed the ripening process. Thanks to a rainy early summer and a sunny and windy August-September, the harvest gave very good quality results.
Excellent for the whole meal, it pairs perfectly with light and fresh dishes, such as tomato and feta salad or beef carpaccio with arugula and parmesan.
