Col di Sasso. Castello Banfi 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Col di Sasso, which translates to "Stony Hill," is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grapes cultivated on the most rocky and impervious slopes of the Banfi estate in Montalcino, Tuscany.Typically harvested in early October, each grape variety is vinified separately. The Sangiovese imparts body, while stainless steel aged Cabernet Sauvignon adds fruit and structure.Col di Sasso is a youthful red to be enjoyed with grilled or roasted meats, poultry, or as an ideal accompaniment to pasta with meat sauce and mildly piquant cheeses.

dark, inky. Not unpleasantly astringent, but a bit tannic. Licorice, dusty leather, tobacco. Nice.

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

Klares Rubinrot; frisch-fruchtige, beerige Nase, nach Kirschen, Himbeeren, Veilchen und Gewürzen duftend. Im Gaumen süffig, rund und geschmeidig. Würziger Nachgeschmack.

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.

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

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.
