Col-di-Sasso, which translates to "Stony Hill," is a 50/50 blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes cultivated on the most rocky and impervious slopes of the Banfi estate in Montalcino, Tuscany. Harvested in early October, each grape variety is vinified separately. Matured for a short period in Slavonian oak casks, 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 meat...
Wine Spectator(2002 Vintage)
Wine & Spirits(2006 Vintage) A silky, stylish vino da tavola from Tuscany, combining rich, dark cherry, plum and cassis characteristics from Cabernet with smooth texture and subtle spiciness from Sangiovese. Utterly refined and polished in a super-Tuscan style, this wine will pair nicely with spaghetti Bolognesi, but it has the class to match prime rib.
