Col-di-Sasso Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon & Sangiovese 2008

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.

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

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.

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

Banfi Col di Sasso Cabernet / Sangiovese 2008 - Castello: Col di Sasso Cabernet / Sangiovese 2008 - Rotwein von Castello BanfiIm Glas wirkt der Col di Sasso Cabernet / Sangiovese von 2008 rubinrot, jung aber intensiv. Sein Bukett ist frisch und sortentypisch, mit einem bereichernden Anklang an Gewürze. Im Geschmack zeigt sich der Wein voll und weich, ausgewogen und trinkfertig. Dieser Wein eignet sich ausgezeichnet zu ersten Gängen, zu hellem Fleisch und leichten Hauptgerichten.Weingut: Castello BanfiLand: ItalienRegion: ToskanaRebsorten: Cabernet Sauvignon, SangioveseAlkoholgehalt: 13 Vol.%Inhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CAuszeichnungen von Castello Banfi:"The VinItaly International Award" - April 2009 Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Sangiovese

A fresh red, with black fruit and light vanilla character. Medium-bodied, with a firm, young feel. Very quaffable. Drink now.

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 fruity young red, with crushed berry and mineral character on a soft, silky medium-to-full body, with plump fruit and a clean finish. Always good value. Drink now.
