A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is a "Super-Tuscan" in style, if not in price! The smooth, balanced flavors of fruit and spice would be delightful with roast chicken, pasta with red sauce, or meatloaf.

Sangiovese and Cabernet, this Good-value red is full of solid, chunky fruit. Soft, but firmly dry tannins give a sense of structure, while the upfront fruit and acids bring the whole wine into shape.

A fine and well-balanced blend of equal proportions of Cabernet and the indigenous Sangiovese grape. Complex, yet soft, this deep colored red wine has a bouquet that reminds me of spices, while on the palate I find a pleasant blend of fruit and oak.

A silky, stylish vino da tavola from Tuscany, combining rich, dark cherry, plum and cassis characteristics from Cabernet with smooth texture and subtle spiciness from Sangiovese. Utterly refined and polished in a super-Tuscan style, this wine will pair nicely with spaghetti Bolognesi, but it has the class to match prime rib.

Plenty of plum and strawberry character, with just a hint of vanilla. Medium body and finish, with fine tannins. Serious value. Best after 2004.

A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is a ldquo;Super-Tuscanrdquo; in style, if not in price! The smooth, balanced flavors of fruit and spice would be delightful with roast chicken, pasta with red sauce, or meatloaf.

This shows good richness, with cherry and berry flavors, but itrsquo;s just a bit tight on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

One of the best known and appreciated Banfi labels in the world, Col di Sasso, which translates to "Stony Hill", is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese cultivated on the most rocky and impervious slopes of the Banfi estate in Montalcino. The perfect marriage between these two grapes gives birth to a youthful yet concentrated and extremely fruity red wine.

Tasting Notes:

Colour: ruby red, young, but intense. Bouquet: fresh, varietal, enriched with spicy notes. Taste: full and soft, balanced, easy-to-drink.
