Castello Banfi Col di Sasso Cabernet Sangiovese Wlochy Toscany Cuvee Castello Banfi Cabernet Sauvignon. Sangiovese 2009

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.

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

Intense aromas of blackberry and black cherry. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Excellent value. Drink now through 2008.

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.

Herersquo;s a ldquo;super Tuscanrdquo; that delivers with a super price! A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, this smooth and rich red is ready to drink today. Supple flavors of plum, dried apricot and cherry are supported by a gentle touch of oak.

The blackberry theme is augmented by thyme, sage and coffee accents in this rich red, which just lacks the harmony and length to be outstanding . Best from 2012 through 2020.
