Col di Sasso Banfi
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese
The grape maceration does not last longer than 5-6 days, and takes place at a temperature of 24-25° C thus allowing 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.
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.
