Professional Wine Reviews for Banfi Bolgheri Rosso Aska 2016

Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
Ripe black cherry, plum, herb, leather, earth and salty flavors are supported by a dense structure in this solidly built red. All the components are here, but this needs time to harmonize. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2035. 5,800 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.
Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Aska brings a lot more focus and precision to this blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc. The bouquet is nicely stitched together with black fruit aromas followed by spice, tobacco and dark earth. This mid-weight Tuscan red offers fresh acidity and mild structure. Pair it with any informal pasta dish.

Winery Banfi

Region: Tuscany

The beautiful region of Tuscany has been associated with wine production for almost three thousand years, and as such is one of the oldest and most highly respected wine producing regions in the world. The hot, sunny climate supports quite a wide range of grapes, but the grape varietals most widely grown across this large region are Sangiovese and Vernaccia, both of which are used in the production of Tuscany's most distinctive red and white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon and other imported grape varietals have also flourished there for over two hundred years, but it wasn't until the 1970's and the rise of the 'Super Tuscans' that they were widely used, when the fine wineries of the region began experimenting with Bordeaux style red wines to great effect.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
