Banfi Col-Di-Sasso

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.
