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.
This is a very new-world, fruit forward, light-bodied fun drink. Although a bit simplistic, with a ton of hich-C fruit punch component, it has nice tannins and just the right amount of alcohol. Great for your freinds who don't like old-world wines. Good on it's own, great with pizza, better with Tacos.
