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

Tuscany is probably Italy's most important and widely respected wine region, with a history which stretches back almost three thousand years, and a set of fine grape varietals which produce some of the most delicious quality white and red wines in the world. Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes are grown all over this expansive region, and the way they are handled, aged and processed varies from town to town. The beautiful hot climate of Tuscany helps these grapes reach full ripeness, despite the fact the soil of the region is generally problematic for the vintners who work there. Despite this, there is a dedication to quality and flavor in Tuscany which is more or less unmatched anywhere else in Italy, and a great mix of strong tradition and willingness to experiment and think outside the box which has been a wonderful recipe for success in the region.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
