Col di Sasso
Cabernet Sauvignon - Sangiovese
Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese.
The grape maceration does not last longer than 5-6 days, and takes place at a temperature of 24-25° C. This enables to obtain a good colour extraction without encumbering the tannin structure and maintaining a good aromatic freshness. The wine is released after an appropriate bottle aging.
Colour: ruby red, young, but intense. Bouquet: fresh, varietal, enriched with spicy notes. Taste: full and soft, balanced, easy-to-drink.
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.
It can excellently match important first courses, white meat and light main courses.
Alcohol content: 12 to 12,5% vol. following the season condition.
""A wonderful baby 'super-Tuscan,' with ripe fruit but convincingly Italian structure.""
