Click here for more details, recipe and links to the Women & Wine and "Evening" websites. (Hollywood, June 2007) Women & Wine, a web based lifestyle group, has selected the wines of Banfi Tuscany as their official match to the motion picture “Evening.” This romantic tale about the secrets mothers pass on to their daughters, according to Women & Wine, is the perfect match for Banfi’s signature wines – the white Le Rime, and the red and rosé Centine.   “Evening” is a romantic and moving story about the bonds between mothers and daughters and best friends, about the choices we make, the risks we take, the secrets we share - and the love that fills our lives. Among the star-studded cast: Claire Danes, Toni Collette, Vanessa Redgrave, Patrick Wilson, Hugh Dancy, Natasha Richardson, Meryl Streep and Glenn Close.   From Focus Features, “Evening” is based on the best-selling novel by Susan Minot, with a screenplay by Susan Minot and Michael Cunningham (author of “The Hours”).   Le Rime is a blend of Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay nurtured to perfection in select hillside vineyards of the Banfi estate in Montalcino, Tuscany. The grapes are gently pressed, followed by vinification “in bianco” of “off the skins” at low temperatures in stainless steel resulting in an aromatic, fruity white wine with a crisp finish.   Centine Rosso, also from Tuscany, is a bright ruby red youthful wine, intensely fruity with a lingering finish. It is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.   Demurely perfumed with floral aromas, carnation-pink Centine Rosé is sophisticatedly dry with wild berry flavors and a crisp clean finish. It is made from the same Tuscan grapes as its red counterpart, but fermented without the skins, accounting for the difference in color.   Other signature wines of Banfi Tuscany are Fumaio, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay; Col di Sasso Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon; and CollePino Sangiovese and Merlot.   Banfi Tuscany is critically acclaimed for making premier quality wines that are low in sulfites and histamines. It was the first wine estate in the world to be internationally recognized for exceptional environmental, ethical and social responsibility (ISO 14001 and SA8000) as well as customer satisfaction (ISO 9001:2000).
