Banfi Col di Sasso 2004

Banfi Col di Sasso 750ml 2004   
Sku: 10555

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.

Review
"A wonderful baby `super-Tuscan,` with ripe fruit but convincingly Italian structure." Publication: Washington Post

Wine maker notes
Good climatic conditions yielded intense color. Extraordinary varietal aromas due to the extreme variations between day and night time temperatures.

Food pairing
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.
