A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, this opens with cherry cola, sweet fruit, spice and dried rosemary aromas. It is easy-drinking and bright, with a touch of fruity sweetness on the finish.

Production Area: Tuscany, Italy.Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese.Description: Ruby red, with purple hues. Black cherry and spice aromas. Rich taste with soft tannins, delivering persistent black-fruit flavors and subtle hints of smoke, with a lingering finish.Col di Sasso, which translates to "Stony Hill," is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grapes cultivated in hillside vineyards in the southern part of Tuscany. The Cabernet imparts bold flavor and body, while the Sangiovese adds zesty fruit and structure.A relatively brief maceration (6-8 days) at 75-77˚F allows for good color extraction while maintaining aromatic freshness and tannic structure. Col di Sasso is a youthful red to be enjoyed with pizza, pasta, grilled meat and poultry. - Winery

A supple, juicy red sporting blackberry, black cherry and sweet spice flavors. It’s balanced, with a touch of milk chocolate on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2020.
