External Reviews for Col-di-Sasso Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon & Sangiovese

External Review

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.


External Review

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.


External Review

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.


External Review

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.


External Review

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


External Review

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


External Review

Here's a "super Tuscan" 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.

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.
