Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the beginning, the goal of the two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of premium wines. Together with the Mariani family, Ezio Rivella, one of Italy's foremost oenologists, who understood that due to the richness of the soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have great capacity of development. In those years, the brothers, John and Harry, also purchased Bruzzone, a historic winery in Piedmont. Founded in 1860 and specialized in the production of sparkling wines, today is known as Banfi Piemonte.

Wine pairing notes

The dish, heavily influenced by the Cantonese style of cooking, is a combination of two flavorful but not spicy fried nibbles, which require a skillful cook. The elegant, medium bodied, Centine is a very good partner. The black cherry and plum flavours and the hints of spice mingle well with texture and flavours of the dish and the mouth is kept clean by the good acidity. The good finish is a reward between a delicious morsel and another.
