Banfi Tuscany’s Artist


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.


LeRime
: Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay are nurtured to perfection in select hillside vineyards of the Banfi estate in Montalcino, Tuscany. The grapes are gently pressed, followed by vinification "in bianco," or "off the skins" at low temperatures in stainless steel resulting in a delightfully harmonious wine. Le Rime, pale wine with a crisp finish replete with refreshing acidity.


Fumaio: This unique, well-rounded Tuscan Cuvée offers vibrant melon and apricot flavors, with a crisp, long finish. Fumaio has a light straw color with a fresh and intense bouquet of fruit. Served chilled, Fumaio pairs well with seafood salads, rice dishes and pasta in light sauces as well as fish prepared in a variety of ways.

Grape Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay
