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.

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

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.

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.

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.
